How much was your betta ?

I got Goldie for a mere $7. He is an orange betta. I just bought a pretty blue female today for $3 and named her Jewel.

While at the LFS, I notice they have started pricing their half-moons and doubletails at OUTRAGEOUS prices. Yes, the half-moons were gorgeous but they were $60 !!! Some of the more unusual colors of regular bettas were $30.

Just curious, what prices should a person expect to pay for what types of bettas and/or colors ? I'm dreaming of a yellow one, but I haven't seen the color of yellow that I want. I keep checking though ! Now that the LFS has started this new pricing though, I don't know if I can afford it when it comes in !

Attached is a pic of Jewel my new betta girl.

My WalMart rescue boy Aki was six dollars. Kai was four and that was because of the Tropical Fish sale.

Jewel is adorable! (Though her tank looks so...Barren.)

Our betta's sell for between R20 and R50 (1Rand = $7 at the moment).

I cant wait my brother is going to America in August - he will be shopping for me at the various pet places and get me loads of caves and plastic plants for my tank.

I bought 4 silk plants the cheapest one was R80! But then again I cant complain about my live plants. Because I have one LFS that I go to, (well a few but I love the old gentleman who runs this one) they specialise in marine fish but they have the most amazing plants that they grow. And he always gives me a couple for free since Im in there weekly even if its just for a water test. Im teaching him about Betta's since he really doesnt know much but hes loving it and now he keeps the Betta's only with swords and danio's in large tanks - he even stopped selling the 0.5gallon tanks because I told him its cruel! Fortunately he never ever keeps his betta's in cups. Normally they use these divider thingy's that are tiny but hes taken it out now since hes learning :D

Well my petstore bettas range from $1.99 for my VT to $14.99 for my DTHMPK. The two guys from Aqua bid were around $60 but that is because of shipping.

I got a yellow BF halfmoon at Petco for $13. He has since passed on but he was a beauty.

I've paid anywhere from .99 cents at petsmart for a female to $25 plus ridiculous amounts of shipping from aquabid. Altogether, Mikau alone cost me $67. @u@
