I like the kings but they're not giant. Real giants can get up to seven inches long..kings are like 3 at the most.

I dont think there is any proof of a 7 inch betta... Anyways, the king bettas ARE bigger than normal. They are longer have deeper bodies. So they may be part giant.

I think 7 inches is a HM giant. They incl tail when measuring to make it sound more impressive. The largest/longest body measurement I know average 10cm (4") max 12cm (<5"). Kings, to my knowledge, are "failed" giants or F1 - F2 from giant x new genetics.

I know one breeder (Erma of DownsouthBettas) got a giant in who was 6 inches I believe.




Note: The female is 3 inches.



I think Kings may be the runts of the spawns. I have a PK female whos bigger than all my others. I might get King to see what the size of the fry would be.

That's not even close to a dragon. Its just showing the iridecents. That's just showing how a King looks..not the size.

Not to be off topic but he is not ugly at all, I think he has a very sweet face!
