Actually adastra males don't become stressed when placed next to each other because eventually they'll get used to each other and settle down.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Same here but I mix them up to get them to flare so they can get excersize...within a week they start to ignore each other.

I do hope you've developed more common sense in those 10 years. >_< That would be very irresponsible. If the male didn't kill the females, they would kill him. As Adastra said, these fish were specifically bred to be killers.

Yup. It's not something to mess around with...I once had a pair of red coppers together and they started spawning...next thing I know my male has no fins and breathing heavily...he died the next day.

Bettas need room for a territory. Escape during a fight is not possible in captivity.

Here's a vid of a male and female living peacefully. I guess it worked out ok: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuxK9...eature=related

That tank is way too small for 2 and the water is filthy.

The male betta's fins are also very tattered, if you read in the comments one person said that the bettas could develop fin rot from stress.
