Got this platinum fighter in a breeder box right in front of the Eheim 2262 output and the bottom slits have current drawn from them by the Vortech Mp40w.

this guy has come a long way from when I got him... more bulk to it feeding on NLS/Dainichi mix.

These things do it on their own.
You provoke a pitbull to attack another or put it through a series of conditioning.
Bettas are born with that instinct.

Actually, the betta splendens that are in petstores were breed to be that agressive. Wild bettas aren't that agressive.

Have you had wild bettas?
I have seen wild bettas caught from the streams and fought just as strong or better then petstore mills.

You have kept them but only sharing what you have read with us and not personal experience?

Yes, because I didn't put two males together. They looked through the glass at eachother and didn't seem to care much about seeing one another.

All the Splendens at the LFS don't care for each other either... after seeing each other so much they don't bother flaring any but put them together and it's another story.

Put your two together and report back on how friendly they are to each other.

One way or another it will become food... if it dies my puffer and triggers will get a feast, if it wins it's probably gonna be too messed up anyways and the puffers and triggers will get their feast.... So it would be considered feeders.

Not much meat on a betta.
However, I think if EK raised schnauzers for bbq he'd be in trouble just the same. ;))

I fought it with one of the bettas that belong to a guy at work.

It did pretty good for being as young as it was and the size difference.

How big is yours mine is about 1 7/8" from head to where the tail starts. The fight was sweet Duncan took a chunk of the tail off in his fight.

So since you are leaving the hobby for a while does this mean no betta battle?
