My mom asked me to get her a betta for the kitchen, and she asked me how expensive they were. I said about 8 or nine bucks and her eyes just about popped out of her head. "That much?! for a FISH?!"

IF SHE ONLY KNEW

ok got another one for this thread. Me and a friend was talking fish the other day. she has a freshwater tank. she was telling me she changes ALL of the water and rinses out the rocks about once a month. I told her she is torturing her fish they live in a constant cycle. Tried to explain about the cycle and test kits. So funny that no one seems to know they should test the water. And some how her fish survive in tap water!

Bettas around here are only 2-4 dollars. Maybe 5 at the most (for a crowntail possibly)

Nah, I paid $14.99 for my copper CT. The VT's are cheaper because there is such an abundance of them.
If she wants a betta...LOL! She would have to get a heater, filter, at least a 2.5 gallon tank, water conditioner, food, etc. I have spent hundreds on my 4 bettas.

I'm in NJ where everything is expensive, and went to one of the most populated malls in the state and found my CT betta in a cup at the petsmart for only $3.00. PetCo is ranging 7-9 bucks for the already half dead bettas. My dad and I want to open up a Fish Only store (I learned that fish only stores actually do really well) and have a wall of very small tanks for the bettas. I hate seeing ones fading out and half dead in the little Wonton Soup cups...
