Update - He's now at school with me. :) Despite his small tank, he has become much more relaxed and is unclamped with a healthy appetite. I even managed to get him to eat pellets now, albeit a different brand than what I have at home. I can't wait to upgrade him to a bigger tank, I'm sure he'll love it, especially if I've seen improvement in just this little one.

Adorable photo time!

I've also moved my CT into the temporary 1 gallon and put Poseidon in his 3 gallon for now. Just made more sense until I get my tank situation figured out. :)

He's gorgeous!!! I have rescued many Petco bettas and people always ask if I paid for him. I say "yes" and they say then you didn't "rescue" him. They just don't get it. I'm always so happy to hear about other fish that have been saved from such a pitiful existence. So good for you...AND HIM!!
I saved a king last week. He was in a small tank at first, too, but I agree with you...at least he's warm & fed. Just moved him into his very own 20 gallon yesterday and watching him swim & explore felt great.

How big are your kings? I think its possible I may have a king on my hands but I haven't been able to figure out what a young kings size is...

I'd say he's about 2 1/2 inches, maybe a little bigger. Very thick though, definitely not like your average betta. They look much different imo.

Beast, my betta, is pretty thick too. He is really big compared to my other bettas but not as big as what some kings look like. I'm thinkin that he could be a very young king
He is a little over 2 inches
Here's a couple pics

He looks like a traditional Plakat to me, but I'm no expert. My only frame of reference is aquabid, but seems like what they call "traditional" have that spade tail. Here's a link to one...http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...hmp&1380703217

Yeah, he looks like a traditional PK to me too. Very pretty boy! I wasn't sure if Poseidon was a traditional PK either until I used the mirror trick to get a good flare out of him - he has the 180* spread, so HMPK it is. :p
