Hi folks, I have some suggestions and changes needed to finish this off.
Biological content: add territoriality in. And somewhere on the page you need to mention that these guys are also called "Siamese fighting fish"; it's an international resource we are building after all.
Materials: Ad an alternative: fish bowls seperated by cardboard dividers (not every teacher will have the little tanks we used).
Handouts: Redraw the handout. This link will die in time. Your handout should be a permanent part of the resource.
Description of activity: It is important to stress that if placed in the same tank, these fish can injure or kill each other. Teachers must supervise the experiment and have control of the fish at the end.
Lesson plan: bullet 3(and throughout) replace 'set' with 'pair'. Bullet 4: you need a photograph of your setup, and a written piece explaining that you had a clear partition remaining after the opaque one was removed (fighting to death is never good)
Pitfalls: 3 'pairs' of fish
Literature: let's have a full citation for each of the books used.
Educational standards: Let's make a stronger connection, and to more standards. There are certainly more than a few of the VT standards we can meet here.
Next steps and reflections are needed.

Alright, you guys are in business! Keep it up. We'll photograph your setup and videotape the fish behaviors in lab and get this cooking! The kids will love it! I think we need some back up fish, because once the fish have behaved a few times, they tend to get tired. Dmccabe 00:39, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
