Giant Crowntail?

Soooo ..... I was at Big Al's today getting stuff, and after went to check out the bettas. There was a hoard of pretty CT boys there and I wanted to take every single one of the poor bubs home with me. I couldn't though. On the side counter there was one tiny cup with green water in it. I looked closer and saw a HUGE female in there, barely able to move. She flicked her tail and I noticed spikes characteristic of a CT. I've seen and kept giants a few times before, but have never seen a giant crownie. Do giant CTs exist?

I think I'm going back for her :)

I've seen them sold on AB. But they never seem any bigger than regular CTs
I would get her.

Okay, she is mine! I just got home with her. She's GINORMOUS! And definitely a CT. I'm going to wait to gets pics tomorrow, when she settles down. Poor girl ... she's so stressed out.

I think you should name her Rhea, a greek Titan(and the mother to almost all of the famous Olympian Gods). I thought it was nice of you to save the poor fishy.

She's okay now, not so stripey. She is a Chocolate (black/ yellow bicolour), and I've named her Brunhilda. She reminds me of a stereotypical Viking woman with those horned helmets and blonde braids.

I have Viking/Norwegian ancestry too, waaay back in the family. I said stereotypical because I was thinking more of an operatic depiction of Vikings, like in the Bugs Bunny cartoon "Whats Opera Doc". :)
