Actually I do mean a fish breeding group

I'm a member of Georgia Betta Breeders Association. Its a club affiliated with the IBC that meets bi-monthly to discuss breeding, shows, etc.

I don't know the percent with genetic deformity that her males were throwing but I assume she would cull them anyways.

No, not yet. It costs $20 to join and I just haven't had the extra cash lying around. I'll probably join soon now that I'll be getting a regular paycheck.

Most IBC groups don't require you to be a member of the IBC to join the group. I think there's only 3-4 people in our group that are actually in the IBC.

I'm not really sure. At any meeting we generally have 6-8 people show up but there are more who are members but can't/don't come to the meetings or who only come to the meetings that are nearest to them (since the meetings are held all over Middle GA).

The GA group is pretty small. Other groups like CBS (California) and the Florida group (I don't remember their name) are bigger. The mid-west Betta society is the biggest membership but it doesn't have physical meetings since members of that group are from all over the country.

Someone on another forum I'm on is a member of GBBA and told me about the group. You can search for groups in your area by going to www.ibcbettas.org and looking under the "Chapters" section.

I would think it would be the same as any other animal.

In humans if they reproduce later in life, it can be dangerous for the mother and the offspring. I'm not sure about deformities, but I wouldn't take the chance.
