Talking Calling all Kiwi and Australian betta owners!

Kia Ora and G'day mate!

Anyone here from New Zealand or Australia?

I'm a Kiwi living in Melbourne and would love to connect, please feel free to add me... Sometimes it's nice to get a local perspective on betta fish keeping.

Peace!

I'm in Melbourne. North-eastern suburbs to be precise.

I've met a lot of betta owners from Melbourne. There's the Vicbetta club that has meetings every month or few months that can put you in contact with a lot of owners/breeders in Melbourne. I don't go personally, but I think a number of members know who I am because they have either met me or because I post everywhere with my wilds haha

Oh cool, I'm in the North East I've heard of the Victorian Betta Society, however I'm just a novice so I'd be a little out of my depth at those meetings!

I know several people that attend and they are really nice and helpful. I'm sure there is the odd exception to the rule, but I'm sure they'd make you feel welcome if you ever decided to go.

Originally from Nelson but grew up all over the South Island, and spent a few years in Wellington before moving to Melbourne and yourself?

Haha come join us traitors! I love NZ with all my heart but there's just no support there for specialised workers, or at least in my partners industry, except a chosen few! It's sad because there was when he was studying, now there's onlu a small handful of underpaid jobs he can get! Anyway that's another topic...
