I remember you Ethan, welcome back to bettas.

Everyone pretty much has most of your questions answered.

You can find the shelving at hardware stores. You are looking for shelves that can take a few hundred pounds per shelf. They are metal/wire they look like bakery shelves to me but offhand I don't remember what posts here had links to them. Maybe if you look on sites and ask here again once you find them? You can also use cinder blocks and 2x4 boards. I don't have links handy for that setup either but someone might. If you do cinder blocks count on a lot of added weight! You might consider setting them up on a cement foundation floor. I wouldn't set up in an upper story or an apartment. (2 10 gallon tanks plus enough cinder blocks to hold them came to close to 500 lbs if I remember right.)

If you are interested in IBC shows you should probably go ahead and join the IBC. I think the cheapest membership is around $15 per year for an adult. I am not sure what information is available to you in the IBC site but someone told me there is extensive information about genetics there.

I don't know if you need to belong to the IBC to participate in shows. Maybe someone can clarify on that too.

Yup! Dumbo = Big Ears.... They are on both PK and regular HM's.

Some hate them because there is no "IBC" standard for them, but then there was no standard for Half Moons back when I used to have them... There is also no standard for "Rose tail" as well, but I also like those...

My Dream Betta is a Rose tail Big ear Dragon Over Half Moon Giant Betta......

Wow, thats a mouthful!

That is why I usually don't like halfmoons. A lot of them are poorly bred with massive fins.

Haha you guys do :D it's nice to know everyone well mostly remembers me :)
Mr. Vamp. I was on the bettabreeders forum :) how'd you know?

And I also wanted to ask you all if it was ok to breed rosetails? Are there any that swim correctly?

Last ,but not least how old do you have to be to join IBC? I'm sure I'm old enough ,but I wanted to ask.

breeding rosetails will give you a lot of deformed fry, people dont realy like rosetails for that reason. With all the deformed fry you would have to cull a lot of fry.
