Meet Brutus - Halfmoon "King"

Here is Brutus! He is the newest addition to our Betta crew and quite the looker if I do say so myself.

He is a Halfmoon "King" male, which I believe means he's a Halfmoon Half Giant Plakat? I remember reading that the "King" are really half giant's. According to Petco, he could grow to be up to 4 inches. Brutus has a nice heated 5.5 gallon, which he is still getting used to. So much more space! He has a big appetite and already showed off his impressive bubble nesting skills.

Thanks! :)

Yeah, many times the Kings I see can barely move in their tiny cups and have horribly clamped fins. The Petco I went to was one of those few decent ones.

I think he is very ugly you need to ship him to me to get him out of your hair j/k

He is amazing every now and then Petco gets some really nice looking Plakats.
