I am sorry to hear about fred, Imiss my little mutt of a veiltail, clown he was a great little fish, I wish you luck on the spawn and of course I want to see pics of the little guys once they get big, as far as what I have kept with giants, well with elvis anyways was just about anything and everything platys,corys,tetras, and even bigger ghost shrimp, I even had platy and molly fry in with him, he paid them no attention and they were very "snack sized" to him. With all bettas it's a fish by fish basis, some don't mind company some hate it, Harley the smallest of my giants lived with harliquin rabosas mystery snails and 2 dwarf african frogs with no issues. Someone here was thinking about getting a new tank I found this tank http://www.truaqua.com/aquarium-tank-st320.html it is on clearance and well really cheap and looks decent, I ordered one and will do a review on it once I get it and get it set up, it's a whopping 27 bucks and change for tank hood light and filter so it is worth a shot, they have a few others that are priced to move

Cookie will be released this evening Matt. Im excited but must say I worry about her getting beat up. Im attached and don't think I should watch lol. The other 3 spawns were released this morning. Cookie has been doing the final float for a couple hours. Wish I saw more mating behaviour from her but ive tried to be patient.

Matt, toward the beginning of the post I noticed you pointed out there's a difference in 'King' and 'Giant' which I've been asking about..what's the difference?

Kings are typically smaller then actual giants (half giants, maybe), but the term is kinda blurry... Logisticsguy could probably tell you more.

That is a very good question summnd. as Matt said it is blurry but I have done some research on this. King is usually a Petco term that means really big betta. Nothing more. A King may or may not have any giant genetics at all. Most Kings do not have giant genetics but no doubt some may carry the gene. For instance I have a few males from large stock that would be sold at a Petco as a King. At full grown a giant male should be at least 3.5 -4 inches body but some have been grown as large as 7 inches but that is very very rare to get that big. breeding 100% giant to 100% giant will only produce 10% to 35% Giants. To get a giant both parents must carry the giant gene.

Just released Matt. Im like a nervous parent. It went good with a big show by Jupiter and cookie paying a little attention. Cookie is the most mellow betta Ive ever seen. No biting yet so far so good. I had to cover and walk away. Its up to them now.
