I went to my local Petco a few weeks ago and as always try to avoid the betta section.. I don't want to be tempted to take another one home! I was drawn to this MASSIVE solid color (seemingly boring) King Plakat. I like that he was one color and wasn't flashy like your typical betta. I left him that day..
When I went in a week later, he was still there...
Flash Forward to this past Wednesday.. HE WAS STILL THERE!!
That was it! I had to have him! He is massive, and stunning (at least to me, I prefer the wild type looking betta fish). The sad part was that he had so much poo and debris in his little torture cup.. I picked up a few supplies and took him home. I have him settled in his new forever home, and he's doing wonderfully! I fed him for the first time last night and he didn't know what to do! I doubt he's ever seen frozen food before! He gobbled down a quite a few brine shrimp!
I love him!! He's so much bigger than my other Betta, who is a regular Plakat.
Without further adieu here he is!
How would you describe his pattern? I haven't seen many betta that aren't multi-colored, so how could he be classified? (color, pattern etc)
