There not about just showing,
The IBC feels there is room for all betta enthusiasts, young or old, new or experienced, individuals, families, team or commercial breeder.
And they are into bettering the breed, know matter what kind the bettas is, And they also play a big role in preserving the wild type bettas and making sure there not being over fished and we are not affecting them in the wild habitats..
I just thought even if people are going to breed pet store bettas. Then they should at least know hoe to better the fish how to build the betta into the best they can. It's like your going to build a house, and say I dont need any blueprint's, And then you build a house that is just together. But your like whatever it keep's rain out and I can call it my house. Well that's how it is with bettas, If you are going to take that big step into breeding at least have some blueprint's or in this case the fish standard's.
Anyway wouldn't you want to do something the right way. Want to build your house the right way and build your fish the right way. I think that's what one thing we learn in life growing up do thing's the right way...
Im not trying to force anyone sorry if it came a cross that way, and yes I take bettas very seriously, just like you or other people might take the transformer's toys seriously. Well this is my hobby I take this seriously.
Of course I started out trying to breed pet store bettas, but when I found out it's not the best idea and is setting me back with genetic's. I stepped up to the plate and got my self a bettysplendens.com pair when they arrived I joined the IBC, and the rest is history. Anyway what i am saying is please take it seriously and step up and take care of what you need to dont do it just because your friend's want some baby fish and you want to see what happen's
Anyway I could go on and on, your babies are looking good and growing good keep it up... they must be happy and well taking care of ...
