the most I've spent on a betta was 14.99. That's what I paid at petco for my HM Liam and my PK Icarus. I've prob spent over $400 in the last 2 months. I have 9 all together so.....yeah lol.

Yeah, you're not alone. Just the food cost for all my pets is 250$ a month - that's not counting treats/cartridges/any equipment I need that's not food. And what did I do today? Get three new tree frogs. -_-

I've probably spent $4-5,000 on my fish. One of my tanks alone cost over a thousand, and I just spent $170.00 on three bettas that should arrive sometime next week.

But then again, I work full-time, don't pay much in the way of bills or rent, and only have this hobby as my major expenditure. At least my parents know where I am every night - doing water changes

I wish my mother would've taken that as an excuse to have an aquarium for a bedroom. Ha.

BTW... that cheap blue/green/pink gravel? I HATE IT.
I bought it for my new girl's tank and holy mother of pizza... I've had to wash and rewash and REWASH that gravel like 19 TIMES before the water was clear enough for Ruto. FFFFFFFFFFF

I got started in Feb. I have spent about $500 so far. Maybe more? Uggh, it's like an addiction! But hey, it could be worse right?

I also ordered a fish from Thailand....now for "normal" people they just stare at me like "seriously, a fish from THAILAND..what are you thinking". LOL. It's just crazy.

Well said! That's exactly the way I look at it too.

I feel so bad for you guys o.o My moms friend (who turned out to be a total d-bag) bought my tank and all the little accessories, all we had to buy was a gravel vac, substrate, and plants. :D I plan to get anohter betta soon, so luckily I have some money saved up :P

No need for pity. I think I can safely speak for all of us when I say that if we didn't want to spend the money, we wouldn't have gotten the pets in the first place.
