wow, I decided to go to Petco yesterday to check out if they had new bettas. I was surprised to see some new types they added: Halfmoon King Plakat, HM double tail betta, HM Plakat, and there were a couple more but I forgot.

The halfmoon plakats they had there (four of them) were pretty nice, 2 of them really caught my eye though, one was copper/dragon red and the other copper/dragon black. I almost bought them but their tails weren't fully halfmoon. I'm kind of regretting it now :( .

The HM King Plakat was huge, a good 3in I say, but it looked more like an old betta and it definitely was NOT HM lol and the price was not justifiable cause of that.

HM King- 29.99
HM Plakat-12.99
HM doulbe tail-I think these were 12.99 too.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share, cause I was pretty excited to see these.

sounds pricey.. but may be worth it than to have one shipped over seas which could cost more

:D I went back and bought the black copper one. 12.99 for a Halfmoon plakat is much cheaper than one shipped from Thailand.

Wow! He definitely looks worth it! For some reason the petco near me has mainly just cambodians :puppyeyes: No idea why.
