Tank stock price

Okay everyone. The point of this thread is to see how expensive the hobby is. I am curious about how much your current stock costs. You can include the price of your babies when they're fully grown if you want. Mine comes to around 120-140 for this stock list

6 platies
4 guppies
4 otos
5 dwarf gourami
8 panda cory
3 anamo shrimp
3 red cherry shrimp
12-13 platy and guppy fry

Please say what stock you have! Thanks !

Three peppered cories-$15
One male/female guppy pair-$5
Three female guppies-$8.37
One mystery snail-$2.79
= $31.28 - $19($1 per guppy fry, 19 fry)= $12.28
So I've only spent $12.28 on my stock that is surviving and belongs to me.

My stock consists of

3 Bolivian Rams (was 4 but lost one) 20 for 4
7 Zebra Danios 7
7 Penguin Tetras 15
2 Golden CAE 5
6 Amano Shrimp 24

Total 71.

It's a little ridiculous that my stock cost 71 my freaking plants cost me 210. Lol.

I spent AUD$20 on the goldfish (cos of the lionhead mostly) but spent over $150 on the stuff to decorate. $100 of that on the silk plants alone.

Meh!
