I was wondering if there are any Betta shows or clubs in Washington State.

Another member here in the Pacific Northwest wanting to know. I know there's a Yahoo Betta group for either Washington state or the PNW, but it hasn't been active in some time unfortunately, and I didn't see a whole lot of breeder/shower postings there.

The only thing I know of is the Greater Seattle Aquarium Society, and that's not specific to bettas. In fact, I saw some poorly housed and neglected bettas in the galary of their home aquarium contest for 2011, and the guy I contacted said that bettas "live in little mud puddles" in the wild, so apparantly they don't know much about them.

Maybe we should start our own club? I'm in south King County. I know Carmenellie lives around here somewhere, because I met her at a Petsmart in Tukwila. I also know that there are betta owners at the Petco in Tukwila and a privately owned pet store in Renton.

Pooey. I live on the east side of the state :( Ah well, if something gets organized I'll have an excuse to go over to the west side and visit Boyfriend's family. :D

Sounds good to me. I have helped form a few other clubs, mostly for cars, but it can't be that different for fish owners.

I just noticed that others had responded to my comment about starting our own club months ago. I'm still game. I would really like to have other fish owners to talk to face to face, look at each other's tanks and fish in person, etc. However, I absolutely don't have time to do any organizing - I'm a business owner, and the work never stops. On the upside, since my tanks are all in the house where my business lives, I could host a small group there on a day I'm not seeing clients. Or a larger group if the weather is good enough for spreading to the outside. If anyone else wants to organize, feel free to pm me.

I also just noticed, when looking again, that I'm twice as old as the rest of you - not that it matters, at least to me. I could be den mother. (tee hee)

That is where they live in the wild. Puddles. And very shallow water. That's where people get the idea where they can shove them in little half gallon bowls. But, the reason why the bettas in America need to be housed like regular fish(filter, tank, etc.) because they're not the wild type.
