100 is pretty high, but certainly not unheard of. i doubt anyone's ever paid $1000 for a betta besides in the fighting community, which is just sick.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

He is striking and dramatic but has too many flaws to place well in shows.

Actually he has a nice top line. He is a very, very nice fish and would place well IMO

He's a little long in the body which makes his fin perimeter kind of oval. His dorsal and caudal don't quite align properly. Same with the anal/caudal alignment. The disrupted butterfly pattern of his caudal won't get any points. Neither will the uneven ray spacing (which give his caudal an unbalanced look). Neither will his kind-of-short ventrals. The OHM spread doesn't get points either.

In other words, I've seen better. And so have you, Mo.

Most of the fish i really like on ebay or aquabid start out at 80$ or more!! I just cant see it for the average pet owner, although i would LOVE to have one.
