Super Delta, $7.99, overpriced?

Hey. I live on an island where there are literally NO specialty fish shops around. About an hour's drive away, there is a fish store. I emailed the owner and he told me that they have Super Deltas for $7.99. Do you think it is worth the trip, and is that overpriced or not?

1. Huevito - White Delta Tail
2. Fishy - Orange VT
3. Champagne (aka Champy) - Cambodian VT
4. The Blue Guy- Blue/Red VT
5. Olivander (aka Ricky) - Multicolored (purple, green, burgundy) VT
6. The New Guy On My Bedside Table - Chocolate (or Bi-Color) VT
7. Castiel - White VT

Considering there's little selection, then no, thats not a bad price. Hopefully it'll be worth the trip! Maybe call again and ask how many they have.. You dont wanna go and only have two there!

x: at least that place sells deltas/super deltas. Pet Lovers, the lps i go to, doesn't know ENOUGH about bettas, to separate deltas/super deltas, from HMs, so i'd normally pay $11+ for one. x:

I paid a similar price for my delta at Petco and they have plenty here so no, that's not a bad price. That and halfmoons are typically more expensive by twice that price. Go for it. :)
