$33 for Tallahassee, he was a Blue OHM ex-show fish from MartinisMommy, and boy did I love that fish :( I'm sorry I never got any viable fry from him.

Now my most prized fish have all been free. There was my second Betta ever, an orange dal VT named "Fish" who was with me for 4.5 long years, he was a gift. And my two adopted fish General Lee and Poe (r.i.p).. technically I paid $15 for them because I paid to have them shipped from Kentucky and New York respectively but I don't count shipping.

$18 for my two new girls, Spy and Heavy, but i bought them from Chard56. if you break it down, though, it was $4 for each, and $10 for shipping.

besides those two, it was Weiss and Theo, my two HMPK boys. they both were $10 from Pet Lover's. Weiss passed away last 4th of July, and Theo's my blind boy.

my other 4 bettas were $1.99 each (also from petsmart .. they just happened to be on sale)

I don't even want to count what I've spent in total for fish/tanks/accessories/ filters/pumps/rocks/sand/paint/stands.... fish/shipping. We're guessing I've racked up over $2000 so far. I'm going to be divorced before I'm married! lol

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!
I so so want a Giant. I'll own one someday when I know more about them :) Congrats!

I wish ours were that cheap.. I think I'd cry if I saw $1.99 Bettas. Even our females are $7+ here.

$30, not including shipping and handling. Totally worth it though.
