my new king Betta Tut.

Yesterday I was strolling though petco and they got in a shipment of the king bettas. I've been wanting one . So I picked one out then "hid" him since I had my dog and daughter in tow. I came home set up my 10 gal with heater/filter. Sand substrate. A couple homemade slate structures, fake plant and floating plant. I put some filter material from my already established tank.
I waited a few hours. Went and bought him. Waited a few more hours then started floating his cup in the tank. Got him in there and he did great overnight. He's been very adventurous.

He's very pretty! I love those slate things in there, too. Tank looks great.

It's my understanding that the king bettas have the shorter fins. But yes he does look like a female.

Okay...after closer examination...not exactly like my betta...she doesn't have such a "big flare" when she goes at it....which is a trait difference between males and females. Flare size!!!

That's one great looking betta! Good find. Somehow we all end up "looking" and end up with more tanks

He's pretty stocky too. I'm sure it would make a difference if you could see a reference for his size.
