Plakat

I am getting my first betta soon and I have found lots of information. One of the most beautiful looking betta is the plakat. The short tail is very pretty looking to me and I was wondering if most places like petco/petsmart sells them.

I never see any at Petco. I haven't checked out Petsmart in a while. I got mine at Lovely Pets in Quincy, MA (my fav. LFS).

Not sure where you're located but if your LFS doesn't have them in stock, ask them when they get their betta shipments in and see if they have any coming in.

Good luck.

I've never seen a plakat at Petco or Petsmart or anything... I wish, though. They only thing close is the King bettas at Petco.

your best bet for finding PK is off aquabid or straight from a breeder. Every once in a while you might find a PK mislabeled as a female VT but those are few and far between.

Petco now have halfmoon plakats as well as halfmoon double tails. The plakats they have are gorgeous too, at least in my area. Not sure if they are just seasonal or not, as my local petco no longer has the king bettas.

Weird. I've never seen a plakat at my Petco, although I haven't been there in a while.

Mine had quite a few. And after flirting with the manager yesterday i found out they will special order fish for customers. All the plakats that i saw yesterday were a form of dragon too, including one that looked to be a copper.

Yep. Petco has been getting HMPKs and DBTHMPKs lately. I don't think ALL the stores have them yet, but soon they will I think.

I've heard that my local Petco has them, gonna go seeeeee... I have an empty taaaankkkk... :D
