Question King betta?

What is a king betta? Anyone here have one? I don't know what the heck it is. Don't be shocked.

"King" is just Petco's fancy marketing term for half giant plakats. Giant bettas are about 7" long, the original stock for this line was probably a giant and a regular sized betta, which resulted in the 3.5" half giants. All of the ones I've seen have been plakats.

I just adopted a King, he'll be arriving tomorrow if everything goes according to plan. Here's an article on Giants.. I don't think they get 7" long.. but it would be cool if they did. Giants usually are about 3-3.5" in body length and "thicker" bodied than your average betta. I think the average king is like 2-2.5" in body length.
