How much have you paid?

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.

My 4 boys here cost me $5 each plus $20 in cabs/taxis lol
My 5th boy is an adoption.
The 6th boy will be a 12h round trip to get, plus $15.

My most I've spent was $80 on Carnage. It was $30 for him, $30 for shipping and $20 to go get him.

My 5* Plakat was $30. Thats the most I've paid for a fish ever. Since, I got into Bettas the 5* have become my favorite so I had to get one.

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!





(did I mention how much I love my LFS? :D)

I'm paranoid about it too, but it seesm that so many people have had no problems. I am worried though. I don't want any DOAs.
Thanks all of you for posting!

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.

The most I've paid is $95 for my marble DTPK pair. $50 for the fish and $45 for shipping. I own a few other AB bettas so when you add them all up. How much have I paid? Too much!

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.
