Learned how they do Those Pics!
Have you ever seen those pictures online (google image search occasionally) of two full grown male bettas swimming side by side happily? Ive always wondered how they get that shot without endangering the fish. And i figured it out! See, look, here's one of Phantom (the lighter one) and Reaper (darker):
If you want to know the trick to getting pics like this, ill say so later. Right now im just sharing my awesome shot. I could do better, im sure you can probably see what i did from this shot.

By the looks of it I would say one smaller container inside the larger (towards the far end) If you look at the image you can see that the bottom etc not exactly line up and show you the second container. also visable on the left side of the image.
Of course I had two males that was friends many years ago and that would spend a lot of time like that but i guess that count as cheating. Heavily, heavily planted tankDo as I say. Not as I do.

Yup. Im surprised it took so long for me to figure it out. Reaper has a severe tail-biting problem that you might notice by the fact that his fins are so much shorter than Phantom's. He seems to do really good if i rearrange his side of tank every month, so i got another little carry tank to put him in when i have to remove them for that. Then i realized how good they fit together and voila! Instant comparison pics! :D
