Question Housing for a...

"King" Betta. I was wondering how big of a tank can a king betta live in. I think I've read that they get larger then the average betta.
I've looked around and I haven't found much information on them.

I saw one at Petco, and they do get pretty big. Honestly, I don't really like them, I mean appealing wise. Their colors are not vibrant like the other types, and to me they look like the wild bettas, just larger. Well, at least that's what I saw.

I would think that a 5 gallon tank would be good, but i wouldnt put any roommates, but I think it would be all the same requirements as a betta, but just a larger tank.

I'd say maybe a 5 gallon minimum.

Yeah, I saw a king betta and it was, indeed, huge. 5 gal. MINIMUM. :o

The one I saw looked like a wild Plakat, with a brown body and red fins. I wasn't impressed by the color, more by the size. *shrug*

I was going to put him in 5 gallons anyway, so I guess that works out!
Hubby wants the King Betta. We like dark colors and I've seen one that was black and red before and that is gorgeous to me. Anyway, I've pretty much picked out all my other Betta and I figured if he wants to pick one for once, I'll go for it!

Okay, I just got back from Petco and they had some gorgeous King Bettas!
There was one that was all white with specks of black, another that was black with red and green, one that was white and green, and a greyish one.
I didn't get any of them though.

there was ONE king betta at the petco near work and it was very much the meat head of the bunch. it was the first one i had ever seen. all i could think of was a trout! he was just so meaty and heavy looking even though he was only 3-4 inches long.

def not very brightly colored at all. short tailed too! if i had seen one with some color i think he would have been more appealing.

*end hijack* :P
