Since they were raised together thery aren't as aggressive with each other. Not that they don't have spats with each other every now and then, just like people. lol

I saw something interesting a couple weeks back, when someone refused to seperate their two male bettas (ugh). They weren't exactly fry, but they were DEFINITELY young. Most likely brothers as well, their colors were exactly the same. Goodness, they were together in a half gallon? Well they started "lip-locking." I read that this is how some younger ones fight, and if they're not seperated, they can drown this way?

lol, Well, bettas are aggressive by nature...obviously they can co-exist a little better when they are siblings who have always been together, but it doesn't much lessen the risk of fighting between males as one might think. There is always that risk, no matter what....and it will eventually happen if they're kept together too long. They don't call them 'fighting fish' for nothing xD

I feed flakes & freeze dried foods, A, Mixture, I just Sprinkle it over the entire top of the tank, 1 to 3 times aday,

I Take note of their bellies each time, To make sure no ones is popped, ( Never is anyways), But you should always air on the side of caution....
Then I sprinkle away. about half of my girls lay on the top in the Watersprite, the others come from everywhere else in the tank. No one goes hungry as the food is scattered.

As some of you know I don't feed pellets, I just Don't like them...

So the easiest way in my opinion is feeding this way, I never have a problem.
