Question Elephant ear betta

Is it a really betta or not? Pet Co has them but when I look them up online there is really no info on them.

They're really bettas, but they're a new type they tinkered up. There isn't too much info on them yet, far as I know(I only just discovered them a couple months ago myself). I did find a couple photos on google, but that's about it. LOL I have seen them though, they're pretty. I saw a pure white one, but I didn't get it because I know little about that type, being newer and all.

Yeah. I saw a pearl color one at Pet Co which was gorgeous but it was $32 and like you I don't know much about them.

They are just a Betta who has mutated pectoral fins so they grow extra big

I see them all the time in both of my petcos. I personally don't care for them.

Same care as any other variety of betta. I don't treat mine any differently, and he's doing great.

I think they are pretty! The boy in my avatar to the left was a big ear. I had him exactly one year then he died. He was probably 1 year and 4 months old. I don't know if he died young because of his new type or because of my newbie care.

He was a fast swimmer and no different than any other betta in personality.

not the best picture, but my Hiccup is a big ear. :B


here's a better picture of one, though:



i didn't think much of them at first. didn't like them at all, but i adore Hiccup, even if his pectoral fins aren't the biggest and are all shredded up. :3
