Yeah I was looking at him and the other kings that they had there. The lady that was getting the other betta that I wanted (he was a bronz/gold color halfmoon and totally beautiful) said i was crazy spending that much money on a fish... and he was at least twice as big as the regular king bettas that they had. I feel so bad going in and buying a fish caus i want them ALL!!! I am looking to upgrade him to a 5 gal tank. I just don't know what kind i want.. I didn't realize he was that big until he was in the 1.5 gal tank that i have. Now i wake up in the am and feel bad for him. He was eye ballin me this am and i decided its time to covertly save money for a new tank for him and prey that my husband doesnt notice the larger tank on my night stand! lol And if i do upgrade i have a feeling that i am going to crack and buy a female for the smaller tank! GAH BETTAS ARE ADDICTING!

Carefully. o.o

If that question wasn't rhetorical; one could use, say... Finquel--to make it a lot easier on both sides.

edit - I guess each person would take different measurements in accord... i went from shortest distance between the two points at each end of the mouth. You just made me consider taking into account the total expanse of the mouth considering some fish may have long bottom jaws. Sabong has a longer mouth due to being taller but Matchbox has a wider bite.

Your welcome. I agree that he is quite a find. And a rare one at that. Good Luck with him.
