I saw at an exposition in Paris some beautiful bettas, very beautiful, they sell one fish for $1000 and 2 fish for $1800. Is it ok or it's to expensive ?

Wow, I'm not sure about the price...I know my bettas cost me $7 at the most at pet stores, but those aren't specialty bred bettas. I know some rare ones can go for $100 or so, but $1000 sounds like a lot to me. What kind of bettas are they? Any pics?
I'm curious to hear what others on this forum say.

It is in US dollars, and not another currency?

Well I just did a quick internet search and apparently some bettas do go for that much, depending on their rarity/color/traits.

I learn something new everyday!

What about the prices on some Arrowanas and Discus. I would never pay that much for an animal like a fish, amphibian, or reptile. However if it took $1000 to save my dog, and money wasn't tight, then hell yeah I would spend it. I would not purchase a dog for that price though.

Expensive depends on who your talking to. I try and buy fish that are under $10. But I am sure there are people who would think $1000 was just pocket change.

I agree it depends on who you talk to. I only spend 4.50 for my female betta Susie. Remember fish dont usually live as long as dogs & cats. But if you have that kind of money to spend on a fish & really want it. I say go for it.

Ill buy em up to 300 per discus if its a healthy fish and raised well. I am ordering 8 from rockymountaindiscus.com for my new tank I am building right now.

I think if the fish can prove it can cut the grass and keep the in laws at bay, then yeah, the $1000 might be a worthy investment.
