I got one similar to this boy recently (in march) he's marbling various used of blue. Crappy photo, bubble bowl curved glass=distorted body look but shows how much he's marbled (he had no blue when he came home)

Due to photobuckets bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my old photos helpful.

No. A King is Petco's term for slightly larger PK males. A true giant must reach over 2.5" BO by adulthood (~6 months old). But lately, someway somehow, actual giants has been showing up in Petco under the name Halfmoon Kings. Either that or just plain ol King which is $5 cheaper. Petco does not carry any other tail types aside from PK for Kings

Edit: eeeeep Euro help! I just thoroughly read Aqua's post ( skimmed past it previously ahaa) and my head goes "oi if that cello marbled to blue instead of black me want me want". What do I do? Decide my life for me!

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I have been searching for giants similar to that color in #6. Really wish Petsmart at least sold plakats, I have no Petcos near me.

Geeeet hiiiim XD seriously though peeps, Petco cups are 4" in diameter. So if a fish "almost doesn't fit" chances are their BO count surpasses 2" to some degree. Teeeechnically I don't think anything even slightly smaller than 2.5" qualifies as a giant, but personally I'd let em get away with it x)

Is that cello a cello tho? His fins aren't transparent. What if he's a pale yellow and is stable? Yuck, uncertainty.

Srsly, sometimes the big guys shoot in. Newton (my own personal "king") is about 2 1/4 inch in his body alone excluding his tail and the king I mentioned that almost didnt fit in the cup is bigger then him

the big guy is like pinkish not really yellow but I didnt take him out to see him under the light so it might be blue spots and not black. I'll check again if hes still there to see if its blue. HUrng when they come in "white" its always like AHHH what will they end up as? Lord gordon was all white once and he ended up completely dark blue with a black head before he passed away, so its a crap shoot. I wish I was better at telling colors and stuff.

I only like cellos if they marble lol if not they appear creepy to me. If you see blue specks on him the next time you visit - and you don't mind pet sitting until after summer (totally OK if you changed your mind!) - it's an immediate "yes".

Knowing my luck however he'd probably be gone next time you go x)
