Whats a cheap pet?
Yeah, apparently I won't be asking for opinions on this forum anymore because people like to give rude and assuming responses.Well, you might think about using more description when posting because unfortunately many folks on this forum are rather sensitive to the idea that betta's are considered "cheap" by much of the world, and are therefore disposable. And your original post gave no indication of a passion for anything other than saving money.
I've had two pet rats in my life and after paying a couple dollars for the rat I then had HUNDREDS invested in their care in the form of a home, litter, toys, food, and vet visits (yep, I took them to the vet when they got sick). They are wonderful critters, but many are prone to upper respiratory illness, oh, and cancer. Both of mine died from cancer.
Every animal has it's positives and negatives, and there are lots of inexpensive pets available these days from hamsters, gerbils, and guinea pigs, to fish, birds, etc. You might have better luck going to your local pet store and seeing what's available then posting to ask folks opinions.
Thank you. I can see now where the miss-communication happened. I did mean cheaper than goldfishI don't think anyone meant to be demeaning, and I'm sorry if I came across that way.
It makes more sense now that you mention the goldfish. If you had said "cheaper than a goldfish" instead of just "cheap", it would have been easier to understand what you were looking for.
