Is monster a color or size?

I found a female HMPK and I'm trying to figure this out before I buy her. Thanks!

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

according to this
" This terminology can be used to describe a.) body size (as in the case of half-giants or full giants), b.) finnage size, and c.) a white face."

I'd say it's probably referring to her color. Thai Breeders are really good about marking their bettas 'giant' if they are big/remotely big, so monster would refer to her coloring/marbling.

"monster" is a gimmick-y name used by sellers to get people to buy their fish; to make them sound more interesting.

Giant/King is size, usually.

"Monster" is not unlike "Black fire", "Fancy", etc.

They use it to be more interesting, really :)
