I didnt say they were fighting them. I clearly stated that I do not believe the intentions of the posters on this thread was to fight.

I appreciate your efforts for standing up for the hobby. It is true we never said anything about fighting them. and it's true that people get all worked up when they hear "fighters" lol when in fact. without these fighters aside from wildtypes, there isn't much clean betta genetics. As a fancy breeder as well, I understand the constant struggle to inbreed to produce nice phenotypes as oppose to the genotypes of a fighter.

I'm not biased here because i have experienced both sides. People who raise fighters actually take far better care than those who raise fancies. the nurturing it takes the fighter to be acquainted with humans. To be able to flare on command...overall the fact that you have to wait 9-10 months before jarring is a lot of work..and have to make sure they are not over fed. the most important part is jarring a fighter or any betta that i find lots of people miss out and that's the mentality. All my hmpk's and fancies flare at my finger and bite the glass. Now aside from genetics I say how you raise them is a factor. I jar them in a small plastic container with IAL and in dark for 5 days at least NO FLARING and this is what most people mess up on...after that i move them to bigger container.


-now im not saying fighting them is a good idea. I breed them for research about betta behaviour compared to those that are inbred. They are beautiful as well like any other living creature.

Thanks for the info and nicely said. I'm sorry if started this thread got other members mad but as I said before we never talk a about fighting them we only talked about the difference between breeding the two kind(fighters/show Bettas)Let this thread end here to stop the miscommunication Or if anyone has anymore info about breed fighter vs show Bettas can add to this post for more knowledge cause there's more to these fish that I want to learn about

Some people refer to bettas as fighters but it doesn't mean they are being fought.
