Just curious as to how much some people have paid for your most exspensive betta, and if it was stricktly a pet or if they were intended for breeding from the start. Not meaning to be nosey, I just wondered seeing as some of the Aquabid babies are pretty pricey. The most I've paid was $8 for a couple female that will be arriving soon.
I've paid up towards $30 for a nice locally bred betta. My most expensive female is Zinnia, who is from Canadabetta. She was originally a $40 betta, but the breeder struck a deal with the LFS I got her at and she was only $15. I've never had a betta shipped to me either because I am somewhat paranoid about the whole process!
I found one other LFS that had betta near me, but the poor babies were is even smaller containers then at PetSmart or PetCo. I didn't notice the price of them though, only that all they had were males.
PitGirl, wow. Here I was thinking I spent how much on fish?!? I don't know why I was thinking that, maybe just because I'm a little strapped for cash and spending what I did seems like a lot in that situation. I still shouldn't think that, because I spent $150 plus gas on getting two rescue dogs from CO last year. Maybe it's more outside influence, but the more and more I read the less and less I worry about it.
