My Betta Macrostomas displaying in 720p HD VID

This morning while I was getting ready to fish out all my fish to rescape my tank, my Betta Macs decide to put on a show. They must have taken the lack of water flow for breeding season lol. I'm pleased to present my male Macs everyone:

Gorgeous, but all I can think is:

"Hey, hey check out how big I can open my mouth!"
"Eesh, I've seen it the last dozen times already this month, stop bugging me!"

That's awesome. The music was really contemplative. Although, I bet some human behaviors must seem really odd to fish sometimes.

Very Nice Nick!!! One of my favorite fish. I enjoyed around 2:36 there was an Angel that got in the middle of the display. It had a look about him that said, "this isn't my fight" just before he got out of the way.

That was amazing, did anyone notice how wide they stretched their tails at around 1:30?
