Giants aren't for everyone. They're prone to stomach issues and can not be fed dried foods or they get cysts... especially as they get older.
Ohhh. Yeah, I knew they did that on AB but was worried for the big guy. I didnt know that about giants! Huh.

I'm still hoping to get a pair one day. Hopdiggity has some Giant PK for sale that I've got my eye on.. I'd need to find a BIG girly though. Plus right now I don't have the space to grow giants out... and they grow slower than regular bettas from what I've heard.. they aren't giant sized until like 6 months old.

I purchased a giant betta the other day at the LFS. He is about 3-4 times the size of my other plakat males. I only appreciate how big he is because I have him in a tank next to a standard HM male.

my local pet store got in giants ONCE. there was this beautiful marble boy, and i wanted him sooo bad, but i knew i'd need a bigger tank for him. 2.5 gallons wouldn't cut it for that boy. they were in the standard betta cup, and i felt so bad for them. D: they haven't gotten them in anymore since then.

My LFS has a good range of bettas, but I prefer blue marbles/whites which they never seem to have. Plus lately the care has been slipping a bit. They always seem to have crates and crates of bettas they never sell, and most of the bettas have been living for months in half-filled jam jars.
