I've seen up to 15-25 for usa people. Not sure why, but it may also depend on the cost of supplies in certain areas too.

I've decided not to get it, for not having a plausible reason to change the price due to currency. The shipping from Malaysia to here according to him is 20$ and the fish is being sold for 30 ish... which makes no sense to raise the price to 65,8$ because he wanted to get more since I'm using euros...

I found a local breeder, thanks to a college buddy, he has HMs, plakats, you name it, and sells only in this country. He has a very nice reputation it seems and is very friendly as he said that because it's going to be an xmas present, he is going to add some conditioner and pellets for my cousin and let us hand pick the fish at his place.

He lives quite close too, so it's really convenient. Thanks you guys for the feedback :)

congrats on finding a local breeder! I'm sure you'll be sorely tempted when you see their selection. Take pics of the fish room for us :)

It'll be cheaper this way, and safer. AND you know exactly what you will be getting, which is always a concern with dishonest sellers.

Its a nice Betta but not worth that kind of cash to me. I mean there must be something special about this Betta to make the Seller think they can charge that much?

Good breeding material tends to be in this range a lot of the time. But for a pet, I think it's too much.
