Tetsu

My male Hm Multicolored Giant Plakat. He is very hard to get a picture of since when he's flaring he's also flying around his tank. Lol! Hes such a spaz!

Yes... When I got him he was so big he couldn't turn around in his cup or flare due to his size. His nose and back tail were touching each end of the cup at once, aside from his back fin being pressed sideways due to it. He was exactly 3 inches when I first got him two months ago and is still growing. He's at 3 1/2 inches now and still growing. ^_^ He's the biggest Betta I have, and I didn't find out that he was a HM until after I got him. ^_^ My other two Plakats are at 3 inches, normal size I believe.

Surprisingly he was marked as a King Male at Petco. He was the first King male I bought there. Even though I've seen their selection of kings before, I always considered them just regular Plakats sold under a different name, until I saw Tetsu. When I saw him he was way bigger than the other kings there and a lot thicker and I knew I had to have him. I haven't seen any others as big as him since I got him,. I've seen one a little bit smaller than he though, but that's it. All their other ones are usually around 2 1/2 inches.

I'm glade that since I got him he's still growning. This means that his size isn't due to his age, as I hear Giants stop growing at 18-20months. After that time they thicken up as far as body size.
