Question
How a fish eating fish or a wild non friendly to other fish (oscar or betta  etc )look like? describe how to identify them from their physical features & behaviour.i know there are some but wanna know more.thanks.

Answer
Can you explain in a simpler form of text?

Are you asking how fish eat fish? Or how they would interact in the wild?

I know that Betta's in their wild habitat are from rice paddies which are thousands of gallons and also from Thailand in running streams. The Betta's are not as colorful there often matching muddy colorations. Males stake out their territory in the rocks and floating plants.

My knowledge of fish ranges from freshwater and saltwater fish compatibility and care from easy livebearers to monster fish. I can help you set up a simple freshwater aquarium to a complicated reef tank. I would be pleased to assist anyone who is new to the aquarium hobby.

Experience

I have been in the aquarium hobby for eight years mostly dealing with large and small aquariums. I keep mostly monster fish (Arowana's, Large Cichlids; Oscars, and freshwater/saltwater eels specifically) but now that I am in college I am keeping a 30 gallon tropical community and a 45 gallon brackish aquarium while my father tends to the big monsters I left behind.

Organizations
I'm on YouTube! My 30 gallon community posts are the only ones that are up so far. My Brackish tank is next! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3gedHZNmWY28o0-o40nEpA/videos?view=0&flow=grid I'm on Yahoo Answers: http://answers.yahoo.com/my-activity

Education/Credentials
I am currently in college aiming for a job in Marine Biology.
