CT's more aggressive?

So, I bought a ADF and my tank is divided, so I put him with my CT betta...and the fish started following him for a while. I thought everything would be alright, but I watched them for a while..and he started nipping at him.

So then I put the frog on the side with the different betta, and he hasn't touched him. He seems to be startled by the frog whenever they get close.

Are CT's usually more aggressive?

From what I've read around, CTs are suppose to be more aggressive. It should be noted though, that Bettas are solitary fish. They do best on their own. Some can live with tankmates peacefully, and some don't. It really all depends on their personalities.

Yeah, I know that, I've had them before..I just didn't know if CT's were more aggressive, cause I've never had a CT before. :)

Yeah, it really depends on the betta's personality, like AngelicScars said.

i dont think its just that CTs are most aggressive, i think it depends on the indivdual betta, not the tail type so much.

I agree. I have a couple of ct's that are pretty easy going but I also have a few that would kill anything that got near them. lol

I agree with Christina.

I have 3 males, 2 VT's one VT is the most friendly betta EVER, he lets me pet him, and i used to keep him with some other fish and ive never seen him even flare! On the other hand, the other VT i have is s scardy cat and flares at the world! He hates other fish, i put a minnow in there and he chases it for 5 mins before i had to take it out cuz i felt so bad bad for it :( Then my last male a CT flares are mostly everything too, but he was able too live with a minnow, hes calmed down now since i first got him, but hes still a little frisky :D

My CT is great with my cori and blue ram. He sometimes even grazes on the sinking pellet with my ram at the same time lol but my other CT attacks anything, he can't have tank mates now. I also tried to breed him after conditioning for two weeks and he even didn't like the females. I conditioned 4 different females with him at different times and he attacked them all...I assume he is just a grumpy bum lol I guess it depends on the fish.

I decided to never breed him ever....I'll try another male someday, but not anytime soon.

Yeah, it's probably a good idea to not breed him since he's so grumpy! lol

Yeah, it's all in the personality I'd say :P Out of my ten, one of my crowntails, one of my deltas, and one of my veiltails are all very aggressive, but the others aren't so much. In fact, my veil is my most agressive.
