Cool fish, but probably not a great reef candidate if that's what you're looking for. It seems the marine betta will eat any fish and invert that it can fit in its mouth, although it is reportedly coral safe.

I have a feeling they are somewhat hard to keep. I just think they look pretty that's all. XD

Yeah same goes here. 50$ at the most for fish. And i wouldnt go above that price for coral either. Dunno. Not only i have my own place, i wont be moving for a LONG time, and i have a steady job lol. Even then i wouldnt spend over 50$ on a fish. But i would definitely buy some expensive corals. IMO, corals are worth wayyy more than fish. Live longer with the right water conditions.. plus they look nice lol.

We've spent a good deal more than that on both individual fish and individual corals. Sometimes something so killer comes along that we just can't help ourselves! LOL.

For the record, we can find marine bettas locally for about $70 (and wouldn't have to pay shipping, obviously). Sometimes LA doesn't have the greatest prices IMO.
