KadenJames and I are pleased to announce that the American Betta Fish Association is in the making :) You can find the facebook link in my sig.

Currently we only have one sanctioned club which is Betta Splendens of Colorado.

The organization promotes rescue, rehab, and adoption of bettas as well as better breeding and information on bettas. We will even be holding shows around the country once we get established.

We are just getting started and soon we will be drawing up our show standards (similar to IBC and bettas4all).

Note: We are not trying to compete with the IBC. It is still THE betta organization. We simply want a more relaxed organization to promote betta awareness and get new breeders into showing and producing better fish.

If you have an aquarium club that wishes to be sanctioned (discuss this with your club first) PM me or KadenJames. If you wish to start a club in your area please do and then PM us about sanctioning.

More info to be added later.

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.

Very excited for this to get going! It's going to be great!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

So good to see more FB groups for betta fish!! Keep up the great work, everyone!! Will you make another website or just keep it on FB?

I just had a thought (lol sneaky little buggers). In the entrance to many Petco and Petsmart stores there are boards where you can add flyers about all kinds of animal-related stuff. Maybe you could make a flyer to put there? I'd be more than willing to put up a flyer in my Petsmart and Petco.
