It is my understanding that true Giant Bettas get much larger than Petco King Bettas. I'm not sure how much bigger though.

That well may be the common wisdom. But I have yet to see it demonstrated that the average "giant" import priced at >$80 is significantly larger than an average Petco king at<$20.

Nor are they in any way more attractive than several "kings" I've seen. They are not all blue/green and red at my local Petco.

My avatar illustrates this point.

Both of the last two "King" males I bought from Petco were a little bigger than the rest. One was a Blue Marble Dragon and the other looks like a Pastel Green Grizzled, both are Halfmoon XXPK (Extra Large Plakat) and are around 4 inches.

The only Kings we have at our local petco's are brown with a little bit of red and blue

Yeah, that's the regular ones. It took me a little arm twisting of the managers but I got them to start ordering a few Halfmoon Kings and now they have them all the time and keep getting bigger and better quality. The first ones I got were not that nice but at least gave me something to work with. Here is the first three regular Kings I got a few years ago.
