Betta Expenses?

I was just wondering what the average price of a Betta in any other countries were besides Australia, as I have recently been thinking that many of the betta's are well over priced. Prices for VT's and females start around $8.50 or $9.00. your CT's are $12.00 to $16.50 as well. For your more unique Betta's the prices are: Giants $34.50c- $40.00 and for most others its from $50.00 to the most expensive I've seen has been $70.00. And these prices are for your pet store variety Betta, which is quite odd, when some show types are on AB for much less!

That's cheap! DT's here are roughly around $40ish if I'm correct.

Well in the US, particularly California, VTs are around $2-$4 at pet shops, maybe up to $5 at a local fish shop....

Here in Paris, it really depends. Bettas at chain stores outside of the city proper are about 6 euros each, but woefully uncared-for. The bettas in the city's chain stores are about 10 - 15 euros each, and mostly crowntails. I've never seen females for sale in the chain stores.

At the LFS where I got my Modi, they are all halfmoons and a whopping 30 to 50 euros each (sorority females for around 15 euros), but in great condition, spoiled to the limit with live foods and 20-gallon community tanks, and sourced from local breeders instead of Southeast Asia.

Depends on where you go.

VT's M & F = $3.99
CT's M = $8.99
CT's F = $4.99
HM's M & F = $6.99 - $9.99

And thats all the selection... (BTW M = Male and F = Female)

It's like I've been saying: Betta are cheap. Everything else costs real money.

Oh, Petco has giants for $12 and Petsmart dragons are under $10 here.
