King Betta's?

While at petco today I noticed they were selling King Betta's. Are they simply a larger version of a regular betta? there fins were quite short do they get longer?

I probably have this wrong, but I think they are a cross between a Giant and a Plakat...? Or is Giant the same as King? Lol someone correct me if I'm wrong. I'm a little confused over this.

I DO know, however, that their fins stay short.

Betta Slave's right. I don't know how they get "Giant" bettas, but a King is a cross between a Giant and an ordinary plakat. Giants are short-finned bettas (don't know if they're technically "plakat" or not) but Kings will have short fins all of their life.

King bettas are supposedly Half Giant PKs. Their fins do not get longer as they are Plakats.
