        Depends on where you are and what kind you have. I bred show quality ones and they sold fairly well. I had one betta that won "Betta of Asia" three years running. And then he died lol.

          I had 2 since I started fishkeeping. One was given to Lexi03 because I just didn't have room for him and the other lived for about a year and then just disappeared.... To this day I have no idea what happened to him.

          I still have my mom's betta in my 75g community tank. I always forget about him because he is so calm and just swims around with the other fish.

          Before I knew about fishkeeping, my mom got a betta and put it in an unfiltered, unheated, vase that was lucky to get 3 or 4 water changes a year and that betta lived for 4 and a half years!

            I have tried to keep bettas off an on. Most recently I tried several from LFS and a couple from rescues. Not one betta lived longer than 6 months. I am currently giving them a break. While I suspect the LFS bettas are the reason for the short lives, I also wonder if it is something I am doing wrong!

            Don't get me wrong. I still love them...just have no luck keeping them.

              This is my betta I got from a breeder. He's by far my favorite. There is a huge diffrence between him and my cup bettas. He's active, responsive and super friendly. Not to mention he's a good looking guy

                        I actually don't have any. Never have and currently don't have the space for one. They do look interesting but just haven't had the push to get one.

                              He was quite a breeder as well. Produced excellent colors and was a great at taking care of fry. He fostered quite a few batches for stupid males LOL.
