I got this plakat at a local fish store called Dolphin Pet Village(awesome fish there), and although they know a ton about aquarium fish they aren't the best when it comes to bettas. so this male was being kept in the female tank(also a plant tank, so lots of nice hiding spots) and was pretty torn up, but clearly the winner. Makes me wonder if they had two males.
So anyway, I bought him for $3.50 because it was a steal and I was saving the poor little female bettas cowering in fear. the breeder who often sends his/her fish hasn't sent plakats before, and I'm started to wonder if this guy might be a Hm, what do you guys think? I'm about 80% sure it's a plakat, but the fins just keep going O.O
