Aquastar has nice fish - but you have to look for them.

The reason he is charging so much is b/c supposedly these are 'pearl' whites, a strain he created that is still very new. They are supposedly similar to pearl white Angelfish - personally I don't really see it.

They are beautiful though.

I'd spend up to $100 on a dream fish. But I don't really have a set picture in my mind of that fish.

Probably not much since i would not order off aquabid, at least not until i leave alaska. Besides, my walmart actually has some AB quality (color wise) looking fish when they 1st get in shipments.

I would pay alot,, but not to ship it. If I could go to the store and just buy, I would go up as high as I had to.

That $500 male was pretty, but that much for a fish that doesn't even have perfect conformation? Nu-uh. I got my dream fish in a petshop for $11.50 (discounted from $26.50). He's not perfect, but he's darn pretty.
I think I'd pay up to $50 for a perfect betta, $100 if I was going to produce amazing babies from him.

It would depend on how much money I had. If I won the lottery then money would be no object.

I would personally go up for $100 for a betta, with shipping. I payed $80 for my Carnage, who passed days after I got him. I would personally never buy from the same place again. But I am sure a local breeder may have something I like, or I can get in on a shipment from Thailand from her. But this is only if I was breeding. I'm quite content with my $6 pet store veiltails, or my $35 HM's from the breeder.

Aquastar... I wonder how many of those deformed fish he actually sells?

I mean the white whatever angel Bettas he sells... it's a deformity of the scales. Personally it looks like someone stuck a beehive to the side of a Betta. Others may not say deformed, but I see nothing interesting about his new "strain" other than knowing who would pay for freaking much for that kinda Betta?

As for his other normal fish, I hear great things about Aquastars fish :) Just not these white ones lol

Oooh, I know what you are talking about. He somehow made their scales similar to how angelfish look. Their scales look kinda...funky. I don't like them.

If I could find my dream fish locally and NOT have to worry about it shipping here and becomming a betta popcicle, I would maybe go to 35. If I could find a large male to breed with my large female, I may go up to 50, but again, only if it was local and since the only place that currently has bettas is walmart..i don't see that happening. Petco hasn't had bettas in like a month :( I suppose it's better for the fish, not so good for me. I know they carry KING males but they are so drab looking.
