It's a lot of money; I wouldn't pay so much for a fish personally, but all of my fish are strictly pets. If you want to breed, I definitely see how it's worth it to spend the extra money on a quality fish.
Yes, you make good points. I am by no means a professional, but I do want to breed bettas this spring/summer and see how I like it. I would prefer to do that with good quality bettas. I just think she is SO CUTE! And the male is like freaking beautiful.
As per the sorority, we shall see. I have a 10 gallon that I would have to remove some inhabitants from into my other tanks in order to house a few girls without overstocking. I say 3 because I like to keep my tanks lightly stocked and not overkill... there will be a BN pleco in there and a dwarf gourami, which I may need to separate if he doesnt get along with the girls. I have 3 danios in there now that I would move in with one of my boy bettas. So, I guess long story short I could do 5 but... we'll see.
And to everyone: I am still in the air abt her (and the boy I prob won't do cause I really dont want more than 3 tanks and I don't feel like dividing my tanks ATM) after I just read that she may not even ship from thailand until MAY 9TH!!!!! Goodness, that is a long time to wait!
