The most expensive fish... probably $6 for King and Hercules (same cup, Herc was free) then the cost of the 1 gal tanks $5, new gravel $10, plants $6, new plants when I found out betta plants were pointy $15, AQ salt $5, hidy-hole $10 (mugs, came 3 in a box), betta hammock $3 plus $5 shipping
and that is all mainly for Hercules (already had a set up for King)

Most mony I have ever spent on a pet in general- my phsyco ex-puppymill breeder pomeranian, drov from NC to Texas to keep her from being put down (bout $400 in gas) , $200 adoption fee (included spay), $100 to get her shaved since she was covered in feces and matts, $100 to fix three doors (one that was metal) after we found out she had seperation anxiety and chewed/scratched her way through doors, $50 for a dog kennel, $20 for a doggy diaper since she cant hold her bladder ($5 a week for the pad inserts), $60 a month for puppy pads to place her kennels and on dog beds so if she falls asleep an leaks through the diaper there is not as much mess, $6 every few months for a bottle of pet cleaner, $15 dollars a month for arthritis meds, $60 dollars a month on special dog food wit no corn, wheat, or by-products (allergies), $30 a month on special flea protection (allergic to the normal stuff), and more...
compared to her, my betta addiction is cheap

^_^ I haven't added up what I've spend on tanks, but it's not a whole lot considering, I guess if I get into decorations it would be a good amount, especially since I'm considering buying a good group of silk plants this Friday, if I can afford to at least. *crosses fingers*

I paid 12 (5 for the betta and 7 for shipping) which is approx $19.37 to buy my betta from a UK seller but agree that the most expensive part is all the equipment I had to buy to go with him!

The most expensive fish I have EVER purchased is the Giant (Atlas) that I am getting from Jennifer next week - $50.00 total. $40.00 for the fish & $10.00 shipping.

Shouldn't have spent the money, but I have been wanting a Giant FOREVER & just never found the "one" till now.

Gosh - I am just about GIDDY!!! LOL!
