You definitely have to be dedicated to put out that kind of cash. I wouldn't pay it for a betta, but I only care about having a few as pets so a few bucks at the pet store is fine with me. I actually was surprised to discover that I'd paid $3.00 more for Kenny when I got home and looked at the receipt because he's supposedly a dragon. I got him because I could swear the poor little clenched-finned thing gave me a "get me out of here" look.

Then again, it's the same thing with lots of other animals. I'd never spend hundreds or thousands on a dog, as there are plenty at shelters, including purebreds, but people do it all the time. Same with horses, too. I paid under $1000 each for the two I've owned in my lifetime, but people spend tens and hundreds of thousands for jumpers, racehorses, etc.

Its marble so has probs changed its "I love you" by now making it nothing more than a sub par, spoon headed dt with bad fins. Id pay $20 for it max.
Id pay 500 for a top of the line, almost perfect betta if I had disposable income

I don't know if I could ever buy a $500 fish, but I might spend $500 on medication or something to save my fish if they were sick or dying and I knew it would help.
I saw that fish on ebay a while back too- weird that they're still trying to sell it for that much!
