I really wish male Bettas got along fine. I would have a lot of them in my tank. They are so beautiful. Do you know why they hate other males so much? I got the name from Cher's son's name. (Sonny and Cher). I thought it fit my Blue Betta perfectly.

Its just bread into them. So much so you can't really stop it. Its just the way of the breed to fight and defend.

whoa whoa hold up a moment.... this an interesting read !! this is precisly what i keep attempting to tell you guys about..... simple rules to live by on the internet...
if some one is targeting you report them dont tell them about it just do it
if some one appears to be a troll dont call them that report it
if you are going to get worked up because some faceless person said something to hurt your feelings TURN OFF THE PAGE!! wow really this is not super complicated... we have a huge amount of super members here who can find artful ways to express opposing sides to an argument.. then we have well this junk ...
no we are not gonna start closing thread because folks dont agree with you
and no we are not going to start banning people because you seem to have a communication issue...
work it out or stop posting ... if you feed it it keeps coming back....

Back in the Game!!! Live Bearers in a 40 Breeder

Neil - My other fish names are: 3 Black Moors = Curly, Larry and Moe. Three fancy goldfish = Big Red; Carrot Top (Oranda) and Callie (Calico). One Pleco = Spike (because of the spikes they have.). Two Algae Eaters = Bonnie & Clyde. Two Corydoras Catfish = Blondie & Dagwood. (one is an Albino). What do you call your fish?
