I know. I was bad, but in my defense he is really pretty. I'm not sure if he is just old or has some giant genes in him. I saw him in Petco yesterday when I went in to look at stands (and you know how it goes; just one look). Well I fell in love with his larger than average eyes. He's in a 1 gal QT to make sure he is clean before he goes into my 29 gal tank.
He wasn't labled as a "king" just a halfmoon plakat, so he was just $10. I'm not convinced he is anything but a larger than average betta. Either way, he's gorgeous!
Now for the pictures. :D And one of my dog that wanted to come outside in the blistering heat to help me. She's such a trooper.
