Well lemme see here what to do. Hmm you can ship your friends off to me and see how they like get beat to death.....
To be honest your friends are fighting animals which in case they haven't noticed. Sure they may not be pitts but they're still creatures that deserve respect.
I have only once put two males together no fighting was seen though (if anyone remembers my spawn with Lemon and Swimmette let's just say that Swimmette turned out to be a boy :/).
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.
