I remembered when I was a little girl back in my home country Malaysia. We cannot afford to have an aquarium so we op for something a little more affordable, the "fighting fish". Almost looks like a miniature peacock that swim in the water. So little but so colourful and pretty, little did I know at the time it was use for fighting and people would bet money on it. I still remember I would use one of those empty mason jar and house the fish. As I grow older, I often have to remind myself, do not judge a book by its cover, something so pretty like this fish can also be very vicious because when 2 fishes fights each other, they will not stop until its opponent is dead.
