Talking He's large and in charge! Introducing my new King Plakat Halfmoon!

Hi all!

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)








His house

He is beautiful! Love that color.

I have a rock called Galena in my mineral and rock collection, he looks just like he is made from it.

Nice tank too. :)

My current betts nano is the same color. He is a hmpk. I got him from petco. He recently got sucked up the filter twice. For some reason after two Weeks his fins r not growing back.

That's so sad!

Maybe you should keep him in a separate tank without a filter for a little while until he gather's his strength? Just do daily water changes and make sure the water is very clean.
