bettysplendens.com is another good site, lots of info. You can find some nice fish on aquabid but as the others have said use caution. I'd strongly suggest learning the standards for the different types before you purchase anything online.

I have been curious for a while about IBC but i have no idea what it's all about. There's not a lot of information on the website about what joining does for you. Other than the stuff that i'm not really interested in.

Shows, that would be cool, but there isn't any within at least 500 miles of me.

Not really interested in a news letter.

So fill me in, or is it just not good for me?

You can send your fish to shows, buy sell and trade stuff, get quality fish for less than you would on AB (live auctions), and be provided excellent info from the handbook or FLARE magazine. It's well worth the $20 or so for a year.

eeeee Any idea what goes on at the conventions? Do they sell stuff or is it just a big show? Either way, I think I'm going to go to the convention in Jacksonville in June. I live an hour and a half from there.

It's more than a show. There's talks, auctions, viewing etc. I wish I could go!

Ahh! I asked my boyfriend about it and he wants to go with me. :D I'm excited. I hope it's not too expensive? I didn't see anything about price.

Walking into the IBC convention does not cost anything.....You will be able to view the show room and attend the fish auction at no cost....They also have a sales shop where you can purchase fish and supplies....If you want to attend the workshops there is a charge and you have to pre register....

You should attend this show if you are local you won't be disappointed!

YAY Thank you! :) Do you know what day is usually the best? Thursday-Sunday? Maybe as the date gets closer a schedule will appear somewhere. I can't find too much info about it yet. I'm definitely going one of the days (wish I could go for them all, but gas is expensive!)!

EDIT: Ooh, I found a facebook event for it: https://www.facebook.com/events/152948574821861/
