king/giant bettas

At my Petco, they always have a few king/giant bettas in stock, but I haven't seen anyone on here say that they own/have owned one. Are they prone to illness because of their size? Are they hard to find in stores? Just wondering. =)

I know of at least a couple of people here that has one. I want one, but every time I've gone they have looked ill. The first time I saw them they were gorgeous and I should have gotten one then!

Anyway, another thing is since they are larger they need more room, at least 5 gallons. I'm not sure why people don't prefer them, maybe due to the lack of long flowing fins. I think that is what people are attracted to the most.

I think they are awesome!!!! I almost got one, but I really didn't feel like paying 13.99 for him..

Yep, Angelic scars is right! Need at least 5g...

I plan on getting some sort of Plakat sometime, but I have no room at the moment.

There was a "KING" betta at pet smart and he had huge fins and they were red.
It was the one by petco.
