Many pet store bettas came from great breeders. As long as you know what to look for, they'll produce gorgeous fry just the same.

King Bettas from what I have read are more aggressive and less hardy so they might be a little harder to breed.

How are they less hardy? And aggressive? Out of curiosity? I got myself a Giant and he is no more aggressive then my dumbo, halfmoon or crowntail. Unless its during breeding.

I read it and the vidoes I have seen of them they seemed more aggressive. In all honesty if they were less hardy you would not see it because you are too good of an owner.

Well, thanks the only problem with a "less hardy" I have had was Dusk who was such a drama queen for everything. Guess his immune system was weaker. My giant gets his 10 gallon tomorrow <3 if I had a giant female (non existent here except some plakats who are larger) I wouldn't mind trying to breed giants.

Carter is very hardy. Some if the Giants here I have never seen an active one. I have seen a few active Bettas that were not giants.

I found BeautifulBetta's new male crowntail very mean. He outright attacked the mirror a good few times whereas most of my males just flare. o_o And he is still going at it though the mirror is gone. I could try that with my giant (who will be getting a filtered 10)

It is good to do it once in a while just to exercise their fins :) Just not over-using it though... Since they can blow a fin (tear their fin) or get stressed.
