I was talking about the purchase price of the animals, not the upkeep costs.liquidkiwi said:Started a tank only 5 weeks ago, have 8 fish at the moment and fortunately no casualties. It's already cost be quite a bit, but nowhere near how much a dog or cat would cost, and that's even considering the tank and all the other accessories.
Sometimes I tell clients that they need to set aside $10,000 for the lifetime of their dog/ cat and I always get wide-eyed stares. It's true though. One hit-by-car incident and surgery following that and the bill is already amazingly high.
Pets are expensive in general, I guess.
I wouldn't hate to know. What you spend to purchase your dogs is up to you. I am more of a pound rescue kind of person. I did get a 2 year old full bred chocolate lab(with papers) from the pound for $30.copasetic said:my last purchase was 3 WC afra's for 80$ total and that is a great deal splitting on a order with another breeder.. and if you paid less then 100$ for 2 dogs you would hate to know how much my champion yellow labrador sells for.
I'm the same way. I know I don't even have a lot of fish compared to many of the multi-tank fishroom people around.billr said:if i kept track,id cry. 6 tanks and i still want more. fish are my crack :lol:
