Well, if you set up your aquarium properly, it can be an expensive initial investment. However, once you have a healthy aquarium up and running, your costs are really only a tiny bit added to your electric and water bills plus food. The fish themselves aren't too expensive so even years down the road when your betta dies of old age after a long and happy life, you'll already have pretty much everything you need, so you can just get more fish. It only becomes really expensive when you get into rare fish, big tanks (or lots of smaller ones) or get into saltwater tanks.
