Dirty water is one cause of pop eye. From what you put, I don't know how often and how much water you change. Also, the temp needs to be closer to 80*, or you will have health issues with them.

You never clean your whole tank, as it kills all the good bacteria.

I wouldn't use the fungus meds, since popeye is not caused by a fungus. It can be caused by dirty water, fights or internal parasites. If there is an even number of female bettas, they will usually pick on one. Odd numbers are better.
