HELP! I only have 5 hours!!

This amazing female is on AB and I reeeaaally realllyyyyyyyyy want her but!! It's going to be like 60-70 bucks for her!!! So my question to you all is... Am I crazy? Am I crazy to spend that kind of money on a little female betta, when I can get a cute one at the pet store for like $3.99?? :P (Note, I do have a stable job which pays me decently, and I have a 10 gallon tank that I could house her in which is already set up and inhabited)

I am looking for a breeder female (would be my first time) for one of my HMPK's which I will picture below. AND I would want to eventually create a sorority of maybe 3 females...

So, tell me...

1. SHOULD I DO IT??? and
2... If yes, which boy should I breed her to?? :D

THANKS!!!!!!

:D HAHAHA Naturegirl, no, I do not think you are crazy. I just think my boyfriend might think I am nuts for spending sooooo much $ on a little fish... (but a stinking cute one!)

Ariel, hehe! I want to!!! I'm like a little kid in the candy store! :P Hope your fishies arrive soon and safe. :)

I haven't heard anything bad about AB and if you think about it.. it doesn't matter what you spend on your fishies.. their your 'family' once they enter your home. Family is priceless. If I had the money I'd be bidding on fishies from AB too!

If you already have the setup and the money, it shouldn't cost that much more to pay for her and to get whatever else the tank needs. I say go for it!

I understand ya! I felt the same way (and still feel it) about this new tattoo I'm getting Wednesday. Costing me $180 for something I "want" but do I really have the money to get it? I had to cut some corners but I'm going for it.. so really the big question is.. what are you willing to sacrifice for this beautiful fish? Money is at least replaceable.. but you'll never get the opportunity to get the same exact fish.
