Maybe the huge girls have giant genes? Is it possible for a fish who is heterozygous for that trait to have a phenotype in between the size of a normal betta and giant? I honestly don't know much about giants :P

xD All I can tell you is they are as big as a regular male betta, maybe 2 1/2"-3"

I contemplated that idea once. It has to have something to do with genes. I was thinking of using giant females to breed with VTs and then inbreed the giant offspring only for a generation or 2. Wish I had the facilities and the cash to try to breed a stable giant veil tail line.

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:
