Yeah I know. Sad because they also tend to be the ones that don't sell the fastest and so they also have to sit there the longest. I feel bad for wild bettas in most fish stores. Usually they are beaten up, stress-striped to hell and just laying on the bottom breathing heavily.
My pair were $24. I've seen them for more here because they aren't exactly common. Not sure how that would compare to prices in Canada. America always has really cheap fish so I sort of laugh when people are complaining about paying a couple of bucks for a VT.
