King?

This isnt really betta care but... I saw a betta at petco (worst betta selection/looks of the 3 pet stores around me) labeled "king betta" it just looked like a black/dark grey wild betta. Is king really a type or what?

I own one. They're really shy but gentle spawners.

My Mustard Gas female Sunflower is almost as big as my male King Betta, so they're in the spawning tank. Wish me luck :)

Good luck MrVampire!! I saw two at petco, they weren't that big, but bigger then the average. I really want a king with bright colors! Heck, I want every kind. (BTW, I hate petco. They had betta cups that were BROWN. I'm getting a job there when I'm old enough, and they had Ranchu goldfish labeled as orandas.)

Really? My Petco, out of the 4 stores that sell bettas, is the best at betta care. Their cups are twice the size as the normal ones, the water's always clear, and I don't see their poop on the bottom very often. The one I bought from there even had a sinking shrimp pellet in there. I guess all petstores are different.

Very much, it is up to the individual managers in each store. My petco is by far the best in my area, even better than my favorite 2 lfs', which take good care, but have poor quality stock.

Our Petco is so great with selection. I cannot go there without wanting to bring a Betta home. (I can go to Petsmart just fine though).
We would like to get a King Betta one day. Our local one has gorgeous colored Kings.
