Just wondering, do you know that loaches are schooling fish? You should try to add atleast 2 more of them.
Kings/giants should have an absolute minimum of 5 gallons to themselves. But other than that and needing a bit more food they require pretty much the same care as regular sized bettas.
I dont have any yet, but I've been considering getting a pair from a member of this forum who has a spawn of giants.
I definitely want a true giant and would rather not get one from PETCO or PetsMart so aqua bid it is! I've heard a lot of good things about them.
And I know about the loach C:
He was scared with a bunch of mean fish at PetsMart and he was the only one and skinny so I took him to bring him back to health and he is doing great! I'm planning on giving him to a nice lfs that has a bunch of healthy loaches
And the Berta would be in a roomy 22 gal cube tank
With s filter heater and plants
