List of betta breeders in the states?

Anyone have a list of breeders (of wild type would be cool too) in America ?
Or Florida specifically, maybe with a shop so I can check them out in person one weekend?
I'm kinda nervous ordering from Thailand, I don't think I could handle seeing a DOA betta
in the rare instance this occurs.

Thank you !

Most betta breeders don't have shops. If you can get a hold of their email you can usually ask if they have something you want.

For wilds Mark Denaro of Anubiasdesign.com is the place to go. He might not have what your looking for but he can help you find it. He is heavily involved with the SMP.

There are two (or three?) IBC clubs in Florida. Joining one of those would put you in contact with breeders who may be willing to give you fish or sell you some.

There are some US sellers on aquabid. I highly recommend Martinis Mommy. There's Victioria Stark (bettysplendens)... she's moving to Sweden so if you want fish from her better get them while they're here.

I'm pretty sure there are breeders in Illinois.. I think there is an IBC group around there.. not sure though. You can go to ibcbettas.org and look under chapters.

Buying fish from thailand is exactly like buying fish from US sellers. The only difference is after you buy your fish (or even before you buy it) you need to contact your transhipper and arrange shipping fees from the transshipper to you.

Hey guys, I'm new. Just joined last night. =]
Anywho, I was wondering if anyone knew of any reputable breeders and/or stores in the MD/PA area. I work at PetSmart in MD and got my current bettas there, but we only sell veiltails and crowntails, and none are usually very high quality. Thanks!

Thanks 1fish2fish!

Checking out the site now.


EDIT: there isn't any in Illinois it looks like :( although there is a Midwest club of some sort.

If you look on AB there are some breeders in the US. I got mine (and Mr. Vamp his) from seller the_K. Also Martinismommy (did I get it right?) is very well recommended.

Thank you all for the info

I will regret saying this, but there is an NYC breeder with some gorgeous babies for sale on AquaBid...$15 flat rate shipping.

Just do me a favor and DON'T bid on this crazy awesome Red/Black Devil CT.....K? LOL He's MINE!!!



But if you must...At least give him a tough name....Nothing prissy!! hehe
