Is he showing off his fins and gills? He might be interested in the female.
And if the female is showing vertical stripes, she is interested in the male.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

What an impressive display! He's lush! I think he's showing off for her, letting her see his fins giving her a dance and if I was a female betta that would certainly give me verticle stripes!

Gone AWOL....
