They're not even close to giants.....but no no different care...they're just big plakats with a fancy name to make PetCo money.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

I give my King two pellets extra (6 instead of 4) but other than that, I don't do anything differently. :)

I have over 50 adults from a "King" spawned with a Veiltail female. So far at 7 months old they are big for a Betta but not Giant sized. We'll see how big the F2 fry get. I do feed the "Kings" a little more but other than that they are just the same as other Bettas. Here are two of the "King" Bettas from Petco.
