Just wondering

I'm just curious about a couple of things. First, What is the highest price ever paid for for a betta fish? And does anyone have a link to the reigning IBC champion fish? I want to see what a world class betta looks like.
I'm new to bettas and the hobby this is just purely for informational purposes. I apologize if this is inappropriate for this section.

Unsure about the prices, but have seen many go for hundreds.. and one or two for a couple thousand dollars.

There are different divisions/classes.. this is Karen, she has a FB page she is active on. This here is her site though where you can see some of her winning bettas. She won Grand Champion last year. (For some reason have to scroll up on the page when you enter it)

Keep in mind there are other shows out there as well.

The most I have paid, personally, was 78 bucks for one of my platinum white male imports.. Have paid up to $45 for females..

But platinum white is an expensive color to work, as far as buying stock goes.. If you find a white with amazing form, you're bound to have lots of competition for the fish.

There are many times though that you can get nice fish for a much more reasonable price. I just imported like crazy when I started planning my breeding and wasn't patient.

Yes, definitely have a look at Karen's fish. I love hers, they're just so...fluffy! Though, I can't for the life of me find her FB page. Ashley, would you happen to have a link?

I think it's against forum rules for me to link you to her page, Maddy. :( I'm sorry. If you are in LSB though, make a post in there, and I will help you.

Wow!! Those are some beautiful fish!! Are the shows open to the public? I'm not interested in breeding or showing bettas but would like to see some other than at petsmart.

Racoon, generally anyone can come to the shows. They are in various parts of the country, but I think there are several shows in Texas this year.
