It's not backwards....the dominant male will pass on the stronger genes to the female. And this propagates the species better than if the weaker male were to mate.

And as far as "fighting to the death" as you mentioned, this is mostly in captive since in the wild there is much more swimming space and the weaker male will more often times escape or swim away before allowing the other dominant male to finish him off.

From what I have read Bettas rarely fight to the death.

True, but if you want to discuss about there territorial behavior, I think a new research thread should be done. It would be a good discovery as well. My females are bloated. They started eating the Cories' food. >.> Fasting them, hopefully the Cories won't starve.

Hehehe, that happens to me too :( I have to literally shut the lights off and wait for my betta to look at one side of the tank so I can sink some pellets down for the cories. Luckily the pellets are hard to see in my substrate so Cinder can't find them very well. But actually he has learned to follow the cories around because they can "sniff" them out and he might be able to scavenge a few if he sees them in time!

Lucky for you, you have 1 betta. -.- I have 4 bettas acting like Jaws for food, it's like frenzy night. @-@ They don't eat the shrimp pellets, they actually eat when I put in wafers.
