I try not to overlook based on pricetag, but I work in a homeless shelter. The people I work with would love to have to opportunity to spend $1000 on a sick betta. But its not going to happen for them. I try to maintain some small sense of logic in this crazy world.

Anybody who's seen the personality of fish has had their minds and hearts opened to a whole new world.

one time i had a 80 dollar discus sick and i needed to get meds asap.. i had called my vet to get it cause i couldnt find it at a pet store locally at the time
Well i got it, only after being laughed at. They pretty much thought i was nuts.
I dont know so much about taking them to the vet.
but if i need something for my fish to make them live. I will do just about everything i can to help them.
But i wouldnt be taking a few hundred dollars out of my familys pocket to take them to have surgery.

Today I just found out that a vet that sometimes subs in our clinic works mostly for a fish vet. As it turns out, most of their business is related to pond maintenance rather than a whole lot of medical care. The guy also wrote a book and does lectures, so a lot of his income comes in that way too. He does only koi though. I think he's missing out on the discus and marine fish.

I'm going to see if maybe I can work for him on Saturdays or something.

I just want my planted tanks to be perfect. Is that so much to ask?

55g: (Mostly) African riverine species: Alestes Chaperi, breeding pair of Kribs, and rhino pleco
30g: Newly established reef tank
10g: Planted but fishless
5g: Unplanted with various snail species
2.5g: Heavily planted with betta.
