Naw, I wouldn't bother watching that type of interaction as we all already know how that would play out so what's the point? For amusement? Fish that are subjected to fighting are under going stress. Stress plays a huge factor in a decreased immune system, a poor immune system can and will lead to disease. Not worth it, IMHO. Cichlids can handle a stress load better than bettas, but most people will go out of their way in stocking a cichlid tank in order to avoid aggression. Just smart fishkeeping and my two cents.
