For those of you breeding...

How many are actually IBC members? Why aren't you?
I started out as a hobbyist breeder...breeding VT. Then I got into HM and figured if I'm breeding them, raising them...then why not show them. I went from pretty much last place in 2008 to 25th in 2010, to 15th in 2011!!! It is soooo much fun! Join a Betta Group/IBC Chapter. When you join IBC, you can get a free "starter" pair. You do have to pay shipping, but the pair doesn't cost.

Great question, Lori!
Join the IBC! It's the best source of info when it comes to breeding bettas.
Like Lori mentioned, The Betta Pals program is supported by other breeders who will send you a free pair for the cost of shipping so you pretty much make your membership cost back there. There's also a welcome packet and you get a member card which makes it all official!
I enjoy being part of the community and being able to pick the brains of people who have been breeding for years.

Hi Nat :D I know! I'd love to see a lot of these breeders at Convention! They'd be hooked for sure!

Anyone in the DFW (Texas) area? Convention is June 2013 here if you want to check it out.

Blake honey...you gotz enough fishies ;) and you declined the pair I think. It wasn't that you weren't offered a pair.

I just don't want people to think that you weren't even offered a pair...

I can't wait to see what you bring to Convention...all the pairs you got, you should have some NICE offspring :D
