Does anyone have a GIANT betta? or King Plakats?

I saw my first King Plakat betta at Petco. And it was HUUUGE! Literally three times bigger than the normal sized King betta. And it costed 29.99! It was a treat to see. I was wondering, if anyone owns on of those? Pics?

I have a king. His name is Sumo. He is about 3 to 3.5 inches and beefy! I love him and his big self. I'm getting a Giant in the mail tomorrow from aquabid. I'll post some pics tomorrow. I love the big bettas!

I'm on my phone right now or I would post pics of Sumo.

I have a blue marble Giant that I picked up at my LFS a few weeks back. He's now living on the top shelf of my betta 'condo'. He is several times larger than my normal males, but still has plenty of space to swim around in his 3.5 gallon... That's if he did any actual swimming.









Oh, and here's one of my betta rutilans that live in the tank next door. There's a plastic spoon for scale.

This is Helios, he lives in my step-dad's 30 gallon community. He is gigantic! About 3 inches long. :D

I saw one at the pet store, he was such an interesting combination of blue and orange, afraid to think how much he woulda cost

Nice! Those are nice. I'd like to get me a Giant myself. But they cost a lot! But an amazing sight to look at, its like holding a magnifying glass up to a normal betta, haha.

Here's Kilo with his 25 watt heater for size comparison. He's a monster, but a very gentle one. He's in a 10 gallon. He's extremely active.
