Have you ever shown? (1st post!!)

WELCOME to the Showing Forum!!!
So happy to see you here
Anyway, I have never shown before, neither do I have any show-quality bettas. But I would like to know what goes into showing, and if you have ever shown before!
Also, which fish have you shown? What did they place? Did you meet any other fish-keepers? Was it fun?
Tell me all about it!

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

We have a few members who plan to show this fall. I know MrV is and maybe Mo and a few others. I'm anxious to see how it goes for them.

It is super xiting event, I would love to attend one, but I beleive they are in Cali only..but it is very professional in regards to form of the fish, tail proportions, and all, and I love to hear about them, but to be part of one must be an honor!!!

Depends on the Area. Area 1 (North America) hosts shows in Cali, Texas, and a few other places. I will try to attend the 2013 convention in Texas. I'll post a link to a betta show:

Currently, Betta Splendens of Colorado is growing and hopefully by 2014 we will be hosting shows ourselves :D

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.

I plan on showing a couple of mine in the new breeders class in the Santa Clara show on 9/1-9/2. It depends on my money situation at the time though.

She said your parents are really supportive of you and she thinks you'll be able to make it
