Beautiful new betta boy!

    I really need to stop looking through the bettas at the pet store. lol. I saw this one and there was absolutely no way that there was even a possibility of me leaving him there- he's so pretty!! Anybody know what kind he is? The label said king betta, and I'm pretty sure it's right, just want to make sure :D

    By the way, this is the only picture you guys will be getting in a while. This is my first short-finned betta, and everybody was right when they said they move around a lot more than long-finned bettas. I can't take a decent picture of him for the life of me!

    A nice little semi giant HMPK Orchid. King is the lazy generic petcosmart glitz glam name for them. Yeah, no. They are simply half giant HMPK. If that, they are hardly any larger then a HMPK :p. Besides, a king betta is a species of wild betta. He is very very nice and a good find. I always have my eyes out for the orchids.

    bEAUTIFUL!! I actually went to a petco down in Miami last weekend and they had BEAUTIFUL betta! I saw arond 5 or 6 "king betta" in there as well.. I feel the betta fever kicking in againn! :) I went to another one near Weston which is where I live now but they didn't have as many :( It does seem though that Petco has been getting some reeeally nice bettas in, I'm definitely on the look for my new boy!!

    Petco is dangerous! My son decided to get a betta with his birthday money. He picked out a gorgeous half moon, it was $14! They are about half that at PetsMart, but look pathetic! I'll have to keep an eye out for kings now...

    I knoww! I was at petsmart too the other day but those bettas were half dead and the other half had finrot or looked terrybly sick. I saw the prices :S But I think I´d still rather purchase a healthier, nice looking betta for a little more money! :) Still haven´t found the right one though!
