The way I see it, if someone is not willing to pay or cannot pay $5-10 adoption fee for a rescued Betta.... they shouldn't own one. We all know Bettas are not that cheap throw away fish that pet store wants you to believe. I think a $5 adoption fee or donation is a great idea! But.. if you do come across someone who is willing to pay the fee and you know they will be a great home (like me muhaha) then you could always wave the fee after they have been approved :) But to someone new... the fee isn't just a fee, it's a sign of commitment and responsibility. I would have no problem paying $10 for a Betta.... I actually just paid $20 for one I rescued. That's just my thoughts tho.
