Just list them here and perhaps we could make a sticky list.

I agree. I live in Florida (Oviedo). Somehow, Rusty's water temperature has always been in the low 80's ever since I got him. I think is has to do with the fact that since it's nearly warm all year long the heat keeps my home at a comfortable air temperature and I know that water temperature varies too. I also put his tank light for an hour which also helps to heat up his water as well. Does anyone who is a member from Florida agree with me? Do you think that I will need a heater during our cooler winter months? I do have one.

Does anyone in Florida know if there is a betta club in the Orlando metro area? I guess have to Goggle this and post it for my fellow Central Florida community members when I can. Stay tuned.

The IBC has a list of current clubs. Other clubs you might have to Google for aquarium societies. Shows are listed only for the season, and posted for IBC members. Becuase of time and expense, not a lot of clubs host shows. If you are within several hours driving to one, even if you need to spend the night, well worth the trip.

I'm in Miami, FL and have not been able to find one. Even the Betta congress does not have a chapter here.

My yellow HMs King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima, Rosie, Pepper ...and ten thousand children of Willem and Rosie (it is really about 80, but it seems like ten thousand).

RIP Guppy... The little fishie who inspired me to breed bettas.

CA has two one in the bay area (California Betta Society) and one in the LA area (Golden State Bettas) Both are sort of far from me and I was encouraged to try and start one for the people who are more towards the central part of the state but I wouldn't know what the heck I was doing lol

I'd love to know of any Utah folk, even just to make a new club.

Thank you lambada86 for sharing this site with the community. I just finish reading it. It gives good pointers about how to care for our bettas.

Texas:
Lone Star Bettas (DFW and surrounding areas) We take anyone willing to drive
Texas Betta Society (sorty LSB sister Chapter..also in DFW area) non-active
Habarika? (gotta ck spelling) Houston area...Texas City?? semi-active
((coming soon)) Hill Country Bettas (San Antonio area)


Also, you don't HAVE to be IBC to have a Betta Club :D...it would be a group of fish crazy people getting together to talk about the fish they love :D. You wouldn't have to charge dues (IBC Chapters sometimes do just to get money to host shows).
