I never had Marine Bettas eat fish or even show interest in eating fish. In my experience all they eat are pods and shrimp (and all kinds of dry food).
My Marine Bettas usually don't hide at all. My Assessors on the other hand are the Masters of hiding and I hardly ever see them in tanks with larger or more aggressive fish they feel threatened by. So maybe your Assessors are just hiding. What other fish do you have with them?
All 4 Marine Bettas I have are still females or juveniles, so no spawning yet.
