i got this "little" Giant King betta last friday. his head is 3 x the size of my HM! Talk about a gentle giant! This little sweety just loves me and never stops staring at me. He is a bit lazy and i think its due to him having a weird shaped back. he often will walk across the bottom of the floor using his pelvic and anal fins. he loves to swim around too but mostly vertically like a shrimp.! he kind of looks like he is walking more than swimming. I am in love with this big dude! I have not seen him flare yet though, but i am sure he is a boy- maybe he just is not convinced his reflection in the mirror is another fish. This one seems 10x smarter than any other fish i have had or met.. (maybe i am just biased). i have never met a more curious fearless fish in my life!
thanks so much. He was so expensive but sooo worth it. I know you are not supposed to pet your fish but he seems to like it! I need to post some pics of him sleeping in his little log (with his adorable face peeking out). even my boyfriend how has the betta bug after meeting this wonderful little fish.
