I would like to know more...

I don't really know where to show Betta, how to show Betta, or what qualities judges look for in a show Betta. I have never even thought about showing Betta because I only had my little VT who I think is cute but I know he isn't show material, not even close. I also read that this is not for regular old petstore Betta but I found quite a beauty but wasn't sure if he was just pretty or show material. he is the white splatter paint one in my avatar, I have more pictures but have to get them off my phone before I can share. can anyone point me in the direction of finding out more about showing Betta? I googled it but there is a lot of random stuff that was a bit confusing.

Thanks!

google International Betta Congress.

All I know is you can only show what you breed.

You don't have to be a breeder to be involved with the IBC. I'm a member and I'm not breeding. You can get all kinds of info through them.

Can get the basic regulations for showing bettas through IBC. But you must either of bred the fish or have a document of the breeder you purchased from. Pet store fish aren't allowed, nor do you have to breed them yourself.

How do you prove that you bred the fish?

Sorry too lazy to read through their website.

Location: Texas.. where else IS there.. lol
The IBC has the rules and regulations.. but they do not offer anything for how to get started and general help. An issue I have had with them a while and hope will change with the elections this summer. BUT.. there are plenty of other sites devoted to helping people get started breeding good bettas and showing them. Any site I am affiliated with will have educating and helping breeders as its core purpose. I can not throw out other sites and forums here. BUT.. I am on facebook.. BasementBettas. Find me.. like the page and you will find other places to get information. And I can be reached directly there pretty easy. All sites have different goals or purpose.. it is good to be part of many.
