I'm sure that others may be able to offer you more information on the king plakat, however I have noticed a few recent topics about kings on the forum. I am also aware that Petco carries the king plakats in their stores. If you are new to breeding this could be a good start and then once you get a couple successful spawns you could get some giants if you are interested in them. Hopefully this helps a bit and I'm sure other members will follow up. Good luck, Lui

Kings are just big. You will NOT get kings or giants in spawns. They are simply big, not giants and most spawns result in regular sized bettas.

Pet store fish aren't good breeding fish.

I think it's fine to breed pet store fish as pets, as long as you aren't breeding veil tails.

Just out of curiosity, why shouldn't you breed veil tails? I'm just a keeper, with no plans of ever breeding, but the whole breeding thing does intrigue me

Veil tails are a dominant gene, so they are very common. Generally you don't want to breed them because so many are already sitting in stores unwanted :(

ahh that makes sense. I deal with similar things in the horse world (which I'm way more knowledgeable about than fishies lol).

Veil tails (although AMAZING IMO) are not sanctioned in Area 1 of the IBC (North America). In Europe they are still allowed to place in shows.
