after I lost the beautiful marble crowntail boy from petco on sunday (http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=57756
) yeaterday I decided to see if petsmart had any nice crown tails. they just had a bunch of sickly looking veil tailes. (and they put disgusting blue stuff in the water.) weirdly, there is a Petco right down the road so I decided to look there, and they had much nicer bettas, mostly veil tailes, but prettier ones, halfmoons, double tails, and a few crowntails... but what caught my eye was a beautiful giant plakat boy (or as petco calls them, king betta) I'm SOO exited about him! he's a big boy, but he has the CUTEST face! and he's GREEN!! I think he is a piebald, someone correct me if I'm wrong... anyway, on to the pictures!
in his cup
cute little round tail
size comparison of him, a quarter, and my thumb
size comparison of him and Lonnie. Lonnie thinks he's so tough!
(thats not Lonnie's permanent home, its a hospital tank. he has mild fin rot and I'm treating him with a teaspoon per gallon aquarium salt for five days)
