you can make a local resources forum, divide it by states and countries and have everyone post their info... in a form or something that can easily be copy pasted into the front page....
Oh lelei, I'm sorry it didn't go smoother. You are brave and sweet for trying.
I was thinking I may start a thread asking people to share info on places all around the country who DO treat bettas well and are informed. I have an excellent one I was just at today again. But just knowing one place in a forum where the entire country can be on . . that's not enough. I think it would be great if there was a way to share good businesses. Good local businesses .. tell anyone whose "location" is your state or city. Or tell each other about good breeders .. anywhere. Tell each other where to join local groups who sell or give away stock that doesn't make show quality . .. etc.
It would be good if we just share that info. I haven't figured out a good way to do that yet except tonight I thought maybe I would add my favorite local fish store at my signature? It's just hard because we are all from different parts of the country or different countries.
