Just saw some awesome bettas that were labeled "king betta". They were 12.99$ but oh so cool!

Any other names for these guys and anyone here got one?

Half giant plakats. King betta is a false name that petco uses to lead you to believe they are selling true giants (get up to 7").

So how big would the petco "king" betta grow? Same size of a normal one?

Lol, that's how we ended up with ours. Felt so bad for such a pretty fish that we just had to take him home. Best decision we've made in awhile...

Such beautiful bettas!

Here are three of mine...all Petco bettas.

Dubya, crowntail male


Ivan the Terrible, halfmoon male, flaring at his own reflection. I liked this dual reflection shot of him.


Double tail male. I may be the only grandma in the lower 48 with a betta named Papa Smurf.

The Petco "king" betta is a half giant plakat. They get to about 3-4" possibly 5". Still quite impressive, but a true king betta (giant betta) gets considerably large for a betta (7"+)
