    Do you mean plaket (petco calls them 'king') Bettas? They are all bred to have short tails. You may find one with a longish tail but its not likley. Maybe just try looking for a bigger veil tail betta?? You take care of them like regular male bettas.

    I have 5 male bettas and 8 female bettas.

    I've yet to see them in stores. Good luck.
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    I see them ALL the time in PETCO. They are pretty fish. They remind me of a bigger version of female bettas.

    It depends on your area. Yes, in some places they're easier to find. I was merely wishing the OP good luck on finding one since it appears they've already not been able to.

    Ya your right. I have only ever seen them at petco. I may even just be that petco that they are at. I havn't even looked for them in the other petcos I have been in.

    i have been researching, and they can be found with long tails. i was searching aquabid, to see about availability, and found quite a few with "long" fins.... the one at the LFS is a short tail.... and he is a dead ringer for a large female betta (as has been stated)... there is a beautiful black one on aquabid, if i can go by the description.... if the size stated is correct, i would class it as a giant. it is titled "monster"...

    the breeder who is credited with the breeds best shows long fins available, also.....

    now... to convince the wife i need one...
