Yes and from an IBC breeder, too. She's showing some of Joe's siblings.

I am learning so much from the breeders on LSB! I've learned that it's ok to breed petstore bettas. You can also show the offspring of petstore bettas as long as they meet the qualifications or standards. I'm glad I joined LSB. They are a great group of people!

If you don't mind me asking, what does LSB stand for?

Some people on here insisted that you shouldn't breed petstore bettas but you can breed them. You may not be able to show depending on if the offspring meet the standards but they don't frown onnit as we've been led to believe. You still have to breed responsibly, breed healthy bettas etc.

I agree 110% if you breed healthy, good quality fish that also meet the standard I dont see why not. I remember when double tails hit the petstore they were super high quality because they were so few and in between no one had bred bad ones yet. I keep hearing frowned on because you dont know the genetic background but my thinking is you cant guarantee imported betta either! I am glad you found good people to share love with betta with. I honestly didnt know they thought that but I like em a little more now ;)

I'm thinking of joining the IBC so I can have an idea of their rules and standards for show fish. I'm not able to breed because of my living circumstances but I'm getting more interested in the IBC because of the people on Lonestar.

Ask for a female too so you can breed. :)
