curiosity: Giant Bettas

I went to place the order for a MG for my partner's bday present as a surprise. And saw a customer take with them a Giant black betta... I never seen them up close and that was one BIG betta.

Can anyone tell me about giant bettas? Like origins, popularity, if they are any different from the regular bettas?

It really piqued my interest, I might order one for myself :)

Well all I have heard is that betta splenden breeders will take the largest male and largest female they have and breed them. Usually the fries will be about the same size or larger than their parents once they are full grown. So you continue to mate the largest ones you have until you your bettas grow to be really big. I don't know all the science behind it, but that is what I have heard.

Since your question is too general, I'll just link you. Here's a thread on Kings and Giants:
