This is a group of experienced show breeders, most of their fish are show quality, and the prices are very good (some as low as $3). These people know how to properly ship healthy good bettas, and I would trust ordering from them before I would on Aquabid.

Hope this helps too.
i have seen this site before...but i have NO IDEA how to buy fish from this site haha

Theres a few breeders in FL.. in fact there are a couple Betta Clubs affiliated with the IBC in FL. I don't know where your located but these clubs hold yearly shows and auctions selling show quality fish. I believe they've already had their show's this season though.

I don't know where you would buy fish off the IBC website but if you look up the Chapters and the groups in florida you could get in contact with the breeders in that state.

Hmm.. if they give an email just shoot them an email. I know my group has a yahoo group but the website itself is not very active so maybe its the same with the Florida groups.

All this depedns on the seller. I purchased a five month old sibling DT dragon pair they arrived alive and I got a free female!! It was $42 total but that's because I went with expensive shipping.

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.

Here is another contact for you... I know people who have successfully ordered from this guy. He specializes in wild types, but has access to reliable sources of good show bettas within the US. If you drop him an email and inquire, he can point you to reliable sources I would trust.
