4 - Territorial fighting fish (males) - Pet store: they have to be kept alone in separate containers - Very aggressive: fight their own reflection in a mirror - Fight to the death of the opponent - Beautiful shape and colors - In natural habitat (rivers): less aggressive; the fish losing the fight has to leave the territory

5 Discussions: Rusty-James: ‘Nothing. Bum around…’
Steve: ‘I’m going to teach when I get out. High school, probably…’ Rusty-James: ‘Math ain’t never been my strong point.’ Rusty-James: ‘Steve hadn’t changed much. He looked about the same, …’ Rusty-James: ‘Five years…They put me in solitary once….’ Steve: ‘you leave other guys’ chicks alone?’ Steve: ‘You know who I thought you were for a second?’ Rusty-James: ‘Yeah,’ I said, and remembered everything.’
