These effects imply the significance of seeing that courtship behaviour, as the literature has suggested there are many elements that can dramatically affect the ways wherein both male and females can act in courtship settings. Studies have found that Siamese combating fish often begin with behaviours that require high cost, and gradually decrease their behaviours as the encounter proceeds. This suggests that Siamese combating fish will first begin an come upon using much metabolic energy, but will step by step decrease, as to not use too much energy, thus making the stumble upon a waste if the fish is not successful. Similarly, researchers have found that after pairs of male Siamese combating fish were kept in combination in the same tank for a 3 day period, competitive behaviour was most widespread during the mornings of the first two days in their cohabitation. However the researchers observed that the combating between the 2 males reduced as the day improved.
