How Much Does a Betta Fish Cost?

Betta fish are a colorful fish that lives in freshwater.  These fish are also known as a “Siamese fighting fish” due to the fact that two Betta fish cannot swim in the same aquarium since males are rather hostile against each other, often resulting in death.  Unlike other fish, a Betta fish generally eats very little and experts recommend that you feed it every other day.  The cost of a Betta fish depends on the type and where you purchase it.
