KadenJames and I are pleased to announce that the American Betta Fish Association is in the making :) You can find the facebook link in my sig.
Currently we only have one sanctioned club which is Betta Splendens of Colorado.
The organization promotes rescue, rehab, and adoption of bettas as well as better breeding and information on bettas. We will even be holding shows around the country once we get established.
We are just getting started and soon we will be drawing up our show standards (similar to IBC and bettas4all).
Note: We are not trying to compete with the IBC. It is still THE betta organization. We simply want a more relaxed organization to promote betta awareness and get new breeders into showing and producing better fish.
If you have an aquarium club that wishes to be sanctioned (discuss this with your club first) PM me or KadenJames. If you wish to start a club in your area please do and then PM us about sanctioning.
More info to be added later.
