Talking My GIANT Halfmoon Plakat Boys <3

Salvador (as in Dali) who you lovely people may have seen....He's the bigger of the two boys at about 4.5 inches. I think he's Cambodian colored, with a red head and magenta/plum body. First photo is him with Brutus, my halfmoon plakat male.

And my new boy, yet to be named...I'd guesstimate him to be about 4.25 inches long. He has this blue/green/purple irridescent color that you see on cars sometimes? It's really interesting. He looks like a completely different fish from some angles. The first few photos are of him with Salvador for some size and color comparison!



























I've decided that next summer I'm going to start breeding giants! I have these two huge beautiful guys, going to look for some giant females. I have done a lot of initial research but am giving myself about a year to be totally prepared for this.

Are there any members interested in giants? There aren't many LFS around here, none in my area actually, but a few about 30 mins away, so I was thinking I could sell some to them, but would mostly be interested in selling them to the members here cause you're the best! <3

You got some very nice photos of Salvador. It is great that your new boy is flaring while still in the bag. lol You know I like giant bettas! Giants seem to be having much improved finnage lately... compared to a few years ago.

Thanks guys :) "beefy" is definitely the word for them! The new giant built a nest in his 5.5 gal, Salvador is a grump and has NEVER built a next in the 20 gal long tank he has to himself.
