I'm an IBC member however, not part of a chapter. Trying though :)

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 got a beautiful betta at the Bensons, usually Petsmart takes good care of their betta's but last week I saw a DT that was a tailbiter and a few that were breathing hard in their cups.

The Petsmart there is VERY receptive to customer input FYI - if you see something, say something. Also that new Betta "tree" thing they just got I think helps move more fish (which is a good thing for them in those cups).

But yes, I too got a great betta at Bensons the other day.

I love that tree, it's better than there were just stacked on top of each other. Here is my Bensons find

Yours is beautiful!

This is Cannonball - he came from Bensons as well. Can't be more than 4 or 5 months - working so he grows out well!

Anyone see any advantage to getting a little e-mail list and/or forum page together for us few Cap-Region/Adirondack Betta lovers?

It won't be the best page ever made but I could donate some webspace and the time to put something together.

Or given our seemingly low numbers should we just chat here?

A lot of people have websites for their area/region/state. Lonstar bettas is the one for Texas.

I'm sure there are others, besides us - a website would be nice.
I know there is also a member in Plattsburgh - which isn't all THAT far away.

Wasn't that place called treasure chest, or something
I have no idea. I was only in there once and it was a long time ago. ALl I remember is that it was located almost directly behind the shopping mall with the Olive Graden - maybe next to the funeral parlor on Quaker?

I got a male VT from Benson's in Queensbury But I do not remember which one it was. They only seem to have either red or blue VT's - nothing else when I go there

2 came from walmart in Alaska (sluggles, Mr Magic Mushroom)
1 came from Petsmart in Saratoga (derpy fins)
1 came from the craptastic pet sop in Avaition mall (barron von fishie fins the 2nd)
3 from Queensbury Walmart (uncle ihro, El Kabong, and Tanagora
1 from Hudson Falls Walmart (Ferb)
2 from Petco (finneas and Lucky Stars)
5 Females from petco, 1 baby

Something is not adding up here....

OOOH yeah, one of the soriety girls turned into a a male -so I guess now it's a harem? Yeah I know..male/female = bad...
