Smile GIANT 6'' + Monster VT!!!! Video pics

So I went to this local fresh water fish shop. It was a dive for sure, been there for 17 years and I had never been there. I went in and started looking immediately to see if they have Betta's. Well they did and a bunch!! They had the standard cups plus they had one male in each of their big community tanks. While looking at the Betta's in the cups my eyes got so big!! In one of the cups was one of the biggest Betta's I've seen and he was a VT!! Lol my boyfriend and I did the whole garage sale thing where we don't act interested but we both knew we had to have him! Save this giant from a cup. So when we were all done looking we ask the owner the price of his Betta's and he said 4 bucks!!! So i scooped up the giant and we left :)

His body is 3 inches and his ventral fins are almost 2 inches. His caudal is 3 inches plus so all together he is over 6 inches long!! I made a video because pictures don't do his size justice. Currently he is in a split tank next to my other VT and one HM. Enjoy video and pics.
Just click image to play video.....

Here are a couple pictures my my gentle giant..

I know he is huge!!!! Seriously a big gentle giant! I am going to keep him in really clean water and try and heal his fins and clean them up. I have never seen a VT that big before!! I was wondering how old he was myself, and what they fed him. I wish I knew his history :(

I need a name for this giant beauty!!

I find adding a little spring water softens water up for my over-sensitive HMs and CTs. Keeps their fins from curling.
