$33 for Tallahassee, he was a Blue OHM ex-show fish from MartinisMommy, and boy did I love that fish :( I'm sorry I never got any viable fry from him.

Now my most prized fish have all been free. There was my second Betta ever, an orange dal VT named "Fish" who was with me for 4.5 long years, he was a gift. And my two adopted fish General Lee and Poe (r.i.p).. technically I paid $15 for them because I paid to have them shipped from Kentucky and New York respectively but I don't count shipping.

$18 for my two new girls, Spy and Heavy, but i bought them from Chard56. if you break it down, though, it was $4 for each, and $10 for shipping.

besides those two, it was Weiss and Theo, my two HMPK boys. they both were $10 from Pet Lover's. Weiss passed away last 4th of July, and Theo's my blind boy.

yuki my HM was $3.99 (original price was suppose to be 8.99 .. but i had went into the petsmart to get some betta food and they didn't have the one i wanted .. and that store was grand opening and sent a mailer to my house for $5 off .. so instead of buying the intended food .. i had to save yuki .. the bettas there were in really bad condition)

my other 4 bettas were $1.99 each (also from petsmart .. they just happened to be on sale)

I don't even want to count what I've spent in total for fish/tanks/accessories/ filters/pumps/rocks/sand/paint/stands.... fish/shipping. We're guessing I've racked up over $2000 so far. I'm going to be divorced before I'm married! lol

Shouldn't have spent the money, but I have been wanting a Giant FOREVER & just never found the "one" till now.

Gosh - I am just about GIDDY!!! LOL!
I so so want a Giant. I'll own one someday when I know more about them :) Congrats!

I wish ours were that cheap.. I think I'd cry if I saw $1.99 Bettas. Even our females are $7+ here.

regular price females are $2.99
veiltails are $3.99
crown tails are 4.99-5.99 i forget which

$30, not including shipping and handling. Totally worth it though.

$9 for my newest addition Dragon. $200 in tanks and supplies for my 6 beta's. For my oscars about $500 all told, but I made that money back with the oscars first spawn. $10 for a 1.5 inch baby oscar.

My oscars are currently nesting again...and their current spawn is only 6 weeks old...
