Yeah so... $$$

I've probably spent a good $200-250 on this 'betta binge' I've been on in the past few months. .___. It feels like I blew a crap ton of money on them... but it was soooo worth it. >u>

Anyone else been there, done that? Justify my 'betta binge'? D:

I'm not even going to comment on how much I've spent in fish alone since January, not to mention tanks, food, and plants.

I spent somewhere in that range, maybe a touch higher getting my tank ready for mt Betta. At least I already HAD the tank and filter, but I needed to get: Thermometer, Heater, additional gravel, Flourescent light, new oranament, Betta food, Live plants, driftwood. Plus the added bonus of needing to purchase two Assassin Snails in order to combat my Pond Snails.

Would I do it all again? Absolutely. Was well worth the $$$ spent on both tanks. The next major tank related purchase will be an aquarium stand for a 30 gallon tank so I can re-claim my kitchen table, and stop one of the cats from getting up on said kitchen table to watch the fish. I plan to set it up in the bedroom close to the window.

~Kaylin

30 US Gallon Tank: 3 Goldfish (1 White Ryukin "Salt", 1 Bronze Oranda "Pyropus", 1 Silver Oranda "Argentum")
10 US Gallon Tank: Borealis the Betta, Assassin Snail, Various numbers of Pond Snails
4 Cats (Fenris, Tatum, 'Spoo and Samantha)
Part-Time University Student
Part-Time Hospital Employee
Not enough time in the day...

Haaaahahaha... I'm totally going to show my fiance this thread when he gets home. He's been nagging about me spending too much 'on freakin' fish'.

My sympathies, friend. I've got two cats, one of which very much a devil. Same thing. Silly kitties. <3

Yeeaaah. I spent at least $350 on my first tank setup because I didn't research very well. I'm already starting to think about my next tank, even though I said I wouldn't....
