Seriously ??? That's totally ridiculous !

I've seen them around $60 at our LFS, but there's no way I'd pay that much for a fish. No way.

that girl, and her possible brother, are horrid. D: beautiful(the male looks like a white butterfly!), but their skin....

i saw a white betta go for $1001 once. most expensive i've bought, was Theo and Weiss, at $10 each, and my brother's delta dragon was $15.

That betta's skin looks gross.

The highest I've paid was 15. That's probably the highest I ever will pay (shipping included).

Heavy and Spy, my two new DT gals, cost me $18 total. that's $4 per fish, and $10 shippping. so, not the most expensive i've paid for bettas. x: a dollar less than my personal most expensive. xD

The highest price for a betta that I've seen is around $20. Aquastar71 is way overpriced on that female and her skin looks horrid.

is that the cause of some really bunched up scales?

If I named every betta I had in my signature then it would take up two pages of a thread. Lets just say I have many!
