All my girls have been under $4.00, with the exception of my 4 new aquabid girls. The four were $15.00, $10.00, $10.00 and free - and then the shipping on top of that. I got four healthy baby girls, though, very pretty, all f1 from Thai stock, all HF - a marble, two red dragons and a cellophane dal.

The females are generally cheaper... some males on aquabid go for upwards of $35.00... I look at their pictures and sigh, they are so pretty. But I'm hooked on the females. :)

20H: 2 Cory Catfish, One very mellow Cambodian female Betta, Two Golden Veil Angelfish (male and female)

My bettas range in price from $7.00 for my VT males purchased from my LFS, to $60.00 for a white HM male imported from Thailand.

The best part is that my Thailand import bit his tail during shipping, and then during a divider collapse in their temporary tank, got attacked by my other Thailand male. So my poor $60.00 fish went from looking stunning in his online video, to looking completely awful in a day. Here's a link to a video of my male showing him BDC (Before Divider Collapse )

I can't remember what I spent to buy my fish, I just know I've spent hundreds on tanks, heaters, silk plants, live plants, meds, salts, gravel, light bulbs, thermometers, filter cartridges, etc etc etc to keep a few dollar fish alive-ack!
