I joined the IBC in 2005 after I saw Half Moon and plakat bettas while on an internet search. There was a link on a site to the IBC. I have kept fish (on and off!) for over 50 years but only had kept the veil tail betta in my community tank. I attended my first IBC Convention in 2007. I enjoy meeting new people at the shows and conventions, and seeing all the beautiful fish. Spawning and raising these beautiful fish is a joy for me. I was introduced to the wild bettas at one of the GABBA IBC Chapter meetings in 2006. That sparked my interest in the wild bettas, too, so I went to the IBC SMP site and began to learn about the wilds. Now I have three species of wild bettas along with Plakats and some HMs.
