LMAO

Yeah, as far as the price of bettas go, that's 8 or 9 bucks Canadian Even when the canadian dollar is about par with the US dollar, most things up here are still way more expensive. Especially because we're so far north and everything has to be shipped farther.

I have 4 guppies in a ten gal and have spend hundreds of dollars on them so far. It starts out fairly inocent... the tank is about 50 dollars, the heater is 30, the filter system about 30, then you buy a new pretty plant or rock every time you go into the store, then you someone gives you somethng for free and you spend a hundred bucks on medications trying to clear up the diseases you got from it!!!!!!!!!!! I paid 60 bucks just for the melafix and pimafix the other day. My mom would tear a strip off me if she found out! LOL

I don't need to mention how much she spends of hoof ointment, citrus insect repellent and sheepskin-covered special girths for her overwieght horse, though! :p

We only have one pet store in town - a tiny Petland. Because of that and the fact that it is the only pet store within 400 miles (not exaggerating) and shipping is rather expensive, they jack the prices way up. I brought home a new pair of guppies from kamloops this weekend, they were 3.99 each and two-for-one. In Terrace they are 7.99 each.

The melafix and pimafix bottles were the 8 oz ones and both came to sixty dollars with sales tax (which is something like 12 or 13 percent at the moment - it gets changed every year I can't keep track!) I meant to price them when I was in Kamloops but forgot. At least it seems to be helping, my fish are looking pretty healthy now. They better for that price
