IBC standards for HMs

Green: Show standard must

Red: Flaw

Ok notice the tail: It's not a perfect 180 degree and dosen't have the crisp edges delta tails have.

Notice the dorsal: This dorsal is bending backward instead of straight up.

Notice the anal fin: It's to long.

Notice the body: There are missing scales. (red circle).

That's it. The show standard for HMs,

That would be so cool if you could enter a fish in an IBC show. What are the requirements for joining the IBC?

I think you just have to have a love for bettas. Interesting fact: you can get IBC show champion fish for under $10 at a show AND you don't have to be a memeber to go to a show.

Here's what you get by joining:

"Upon joining the IBC, you will have access to all protected areas of this site that are reserved for IBC members-only.
In addition, you will be admitted to our members-only BetterBettas Yahoo List, where you will have access to great discussions about Bettas and all of our publications, like FLARE!, the IBC Handbook featuring our Constitution & Bylaws and Judging Standards, the New Member Package, a current membership list, a photo section where members place pictures of their fish, a "Beginner's Guide" to breeding and raising Bettas, a tip sheet on how to ship fish to a show, etc.
As a member you will be able to download and print all of these documents. Please be aware that it sometimes takes 3-5 days for the verification of your membership and to establish you on the Yahoo list based on your payment method. You will receive a message from Yahoo with directions about setting up your Yahoo Id and how to verify your Yahoo Id on the list.
Additional membership benefits include eligibility for our Betta Pals Program, where new members can receive a free pair of Betta to get a jumpstart on breeding show-quality Betta. All fish are donated by IBC breeders and all a new member has to do is pay for the shipping. After joining, contact the Betta Pals Chairperson for availability.
Sounds good? It is … click the button below to continue with your online registration to join the IBC today!"
