I live in a big city; that's probably why. The little "designer" betta homes are about $15, while an empty 2.5 and 5.5 are about $13. Granted, that'll still be a bit more once you factor in gravel and decoration, possible filter costs, but the tanks themselves are cheaper.

The fact is... you can get a rubbermaid tub for about $5 and it'll be about 5 gallons.. with a lid. Add a $20 heater and some plants and you have a tank for around $35. A tank that your fish can actually turn around it.

Then again I don't believe in buying a fish that you don't have the space for. I can't stand when people come and say "Oh I was bad... he's in a .5 gallon but I'll upgrade as soon as I get more money"... if you can't afford to properly house your pet maybe you should have saved up and waited to get the fish. ("you" in the general sense of the word)

I've always thought I "wanted" to live in the country, but I like being near everything I need. If I had to, I could get everything I ever needed in a 20 mile radius. xD
