i've only ever seen plakat giants. as for the price, $30 is the bare minimum of what you're probably gonna spend. if that's too much, you can get a King betta from petco, i think they're only about $15, and almost the same size as traditional giants.

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.

I've never seen a non-plakat giant. you will probably have to get a King from Petco if you dont want to spend that much though, I havent seen many giants but the ones I have are all pretty pricey!

"king betta" is a semi-proprietary term that petco uses for their lines of large-sized plakat bettas, so no, you'll never see a long-finned King, unless someone tries to interbreed them, and even then i don't know if the King's size is genetic like a Giant, or determined by the conditions they're raised in.
