called Krok or pouring water it aims at making a fighter
angry and furious. Take water from the male container with
a scoop (Thai call Krabuey) and pour down into the
bottle. Keep doing this for many times a day until the fighter
become furious and starts to attack Krabuey. For the first
few days, the fighter will pay less attention but for many
times a day will make it more furious and jumps up to bite
Krabuey, when it is close to water surface. Besides
from Krok one can make a fighter furious by using a black
tip wooden stick . I call this stick "Angry Stick".The
stick should be about your thumb size and about 8 inches long,
painting with black on tip. A ball point end with darker tip
can be used. Point the stick close to the fighter container,
it will come closer and flare to the stick thinking that the
stick is an opponent. You can do this very often as you want
and your fighter will be almost all the time alert and eager
to fight. Some fighters may bite te container, look out. Playing
with angry stick will help fighter get used to people or disturbances
and will not be freighten during fighting.
2.3 Yok (an action when put a female
into male's container)
To make a
fighter more furious and aggressive is one of the most important
part of this training method. If a fighter is not aggressive
and furious, it will not bite hard and bites less often. Every
betta has their own territory and will protect it for life.
Therefore if one invade one's territory a fighting begin.
I use a small healthy female put into a fighter's container.
The fihghter will chase the female and finally it bites the
female furiously. Take her out. This process may take a minute
or just one and a half minute and we call this action "YOK"
