pls dont get mad i think most ppl on here just worry about the Betta's...we all want whats best for them. and we all know not to keep 2 males together esp in a small vase and thats what it looked like thats all...and most of the ppl in the petshops around here have no clue about Betta's..

Betta aggression appears when a fish has brighter colors than the other, so forgive me if I tried it out with my white Betta who lacked color with my gold Betta. The white one was completely uncaring in case you were wondering.
You are very incorrect, I suggest you do some research. Google "Betta fish care" and you will find out proper information. Most of the time Betta's live in rice paddies with large territories, not murky puddles. They can survive in those conditions when they have to, but surviving is not thriving. Betta's are TROPICAL fish from Thailand, where the weather is warm and humid for most of the year. They NEED a heater to thrive or be kept in a room with high enough temperature. Putting your males together serves no purpose and I highly recommend you stop doing it before your luck runs out.

Your fish are not living in the wild. They are a domesticated breed and are not supposed to be in "survival mode" as a pet. People use the "this is how they are in the wild" excuse so they don't have to actually research what is best for the fish that they have in their possession.
As a side note, I have noticed that just because someone works at a pet store does not necessarily mean they have correct information in regard to proper fish care

@Sweeda88, I know. I found that out right after I posted. That's just the first thing that went through my mind when I saw the picture... It took a while to process. It's late and I'm really tired :)

Oh, okay. LOL. I understand. My brain doesn't work that well at this time of night, either.
