Out of curiosity how does one become a judge? I've studied multiple show standards and have been breeding for a while. Also an IBC member.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

MrVampire181 - I like to judge by eye appeal and to my taste like most judges, you can judge by standards like no torn fins and correct shapes. I haven't found a shape book but I feel inclined to publish one.
