I'm guessing king is another term for the giant betta?

That is a male Plakat aka short finned betta, I've never heard of them referred to as a "King betta". They are closely related to the wild bettas and are the type of fish you'd normally see people fighting.

Plakats aren't necessarily giant though. That just refers to the short finned fighters. My boy is a plakat. Wish I could find a giant down here though.

Pretty guy. I like the name too.
He does look nice and stocky. Thats better than the really skinny ones I often see. Great find.

I've found dragon scaled plakats like mine, snow white plakats, half-moons, crowntails, but no giants. As someone on here said in another post, bettas are like pokemon, you gotta get them all, lol. Great find, though! Keep us updated on "king Tut".
