Betta shows

What is a betta show? I am just curious. I know I will never be lucky enough to be able to afford a show quality one

Wonderful video, Martinismommy--informative and so much fun to watch! Those fishes are exceptional. It does seem an awful lot of effort and expense, and the fishes would seem to be in peril in transit (I imagine), but something must make it all worthwhile.
xShainax, you never know where the road will take you, or who will come swimming and flaring your way. Perhaps you will attend a Betta Show someday and lose your heart at auction!

I had one show quality betta I got from Petsmart. He was a beautiful butterfly elephant eared betta who passed away from my stupidity.

xShainax, if you do some digging in the archives or Bettakeeper introductions, you will find that very many betta lovers have lost beloved pets in the beginning because of not knowing how to take care of them. In large part that's why there is a forum here at all--because husbandry of this sort has to be learned. And intentions count for a lot, even if the results are regrettable.

I know, but it was a stupid noob mistake. I put a DG in the tank and didn't realize they wouldn't get along

Bettas entered into a show must be bred by you or you must have permission from the original breeder.

I'll be showing in the fall.
