i see and also i already have guppies they are beautiful but not as unique as bettas. i guess that their true nature IS and SHOULD always be the aggressiveness that they have and thats what makes them entirely different than other fish. i think they should stay the way they are.
the reason i was thinking about this was because i was reading an article about them before they were aggressive. and i found the most interesting thing in the world IMO, it said that in Thailand-where bettas originated-bettas actually lived together in peace before the people from thialand started trying to fight them for profit and it took almost 86 years just to get a betta to nip at another. after that, their nature was changed and now that chain was broken and made the aggressive betta fry be born.
but it was just a thought:)
