Martinismommy isn't the president. However she is the person to ask about showing bettas.
Basically the IBC is the biggest betta association in the world as well as the oldest and first one.
The IBC provides opportunities for members to show the fish they've bred to compete against others and buy amazing quality bettas for much cheaper than usual.
IBC Sales is AMAZING! I am very happy with what I got and how fast it arrived.
The IBC supports all betta enthusiasts, breeder or not, but does not condone fighting (however several breeders of fighter bettas are members).
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.
