I've gone anywhere to Free to $35 in Canadian currency. But on average VTs cost $3-7, Crowns cost from $7 - 12, Females are usually $3 -5, HMs are from $20 - 50.

The most ive paid for a betta was well over $100 with shipping and handling and it was for two bettas. Locally, betta's can range from $0.99- $45. I bought my HM ranger from the pet store that gets betta's from a canadian breeder, so he was $45. I also got Nemo from the same store and he was only $20. Goose, Bear, Tee and the 5 sorority girls came from petsmart/big als so they all cost me under $10.

Hmm. My girls(VT and 1 PK) cost $3.49 from petsmart. My boys (VT) from petsmart cost $3.99. My boy (HM or DeT not sure yet, hes a fin biter) from PJ pets cost $5.99. And one boy (PK) I got from Petsmart was mislabeled as a girl, so I got him for $3.49.

Here, WalMart bettas are $4. Petsmart bettas are $5-6. PetCo. bettas are $8-15.

On aquabid, I've spent about $60 per fish - I've bought several. For me, a good fish is worth it.

Depends on where I shop. I favor Petco for their variety-- Walmart fish are generally 5 dollars or so. Petsmart I've gotten my female for .99, at Petco I generally spend $15-$20 on a fish-- I could expect to pay up to $30 for something there as that's how the prices run. *shrugs*

I'd like to get an aquabid fish, but I can't justify to myself spending over $50 on just a fish alone.

my girls were around $3-4(i think they're like... 2.99, or something). most of my boys are about $3.99. Theo was $10~ish. Remy and King Steve were $5 even, at walmart(tee-hee. King Steve was supposed to be more. but Lui swapped his lid, with that of a long-dead(and horridly fuzzy) veil. x3). Chappy was free(a surprise gift!). i could get a DTHM for around.... $12 or so, if i wanted(but... i kinda don't. >3> maybe one day~).
