Half Moon Plakat

Does anyone know how big a HMPK gets? Particularly a DragonScaled HMPK? And If so, do you have any pictures of how big your HMPK is?!?!

A normal betta grows to about 1.5 inch or 3 cm(from mouth to tip).
Unless your betta is a giant which grows to 3-5 inch.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!

IME plakats in general grow a little faster than long finned breeds, but given equal care they end up at about the same size. that said, you're more likely to have a trace of giant genetics in plakat lines than other breeds, so some of them may grow bigger because of that.

EDIT: just thought i should throw in that all of our biggest bettas have been either plakats or VT's.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

HA HA! thanks a lot buddy! Plakats are pretty hard to find without any good hookups and I just don't really like VTs. But many thanks for your input!

dude that's SUPER CHEAP! Even VT's cost about $2-$3, but a $1 for a Plakat, that's crazy!
