i've only ever seen plakat giants. as for the price, $30 is the bare minimum of what you're probably gonna spend. if that's too much, you can get a King betta from petco, i think they're only about $15, and almost the same size as traditional giants.

I've never seen a non-plakat giant. you will probably have to get a King from Petco if you dont want to spend that much though, I havent seen many giants but the ones I have are all pretty pricey!

"king betta" is a semi-proprietary term that petco uses for their lines of large-sized plakat bettas, so no, you'll never see a long-finned King, unless someone tries to interbreed them, and even then i don't know if the King's size is genetic like a Giant, or determined by the conditions they're raised in.
