Just wanted to remind everyone that the IBC Show will be held the end of the month as originally planned. See previous post for specific information. Just a reminder that you need not be a member of the IBC to compete in the show. Entries can be dropped off Friday afternoon between 3 - 5 pm or prior to 10 am on Saturday morning at
the park in Clearwater. The show is open to the public so bring your friends.  There will be an auction on Sunday at noon and you will find some amazing Bettas for sale.

Non-TBAS MEETINGS & Shows / Betta Show in Clearwater Coming Soon!!
« Last post by WMPL on September 01, 2017, 02:05:00 PM »
We are pleased to announce the Fall 2017 IBC Betta Show to be held in Clearwater on September 30th to October 1st. Non-IBC members are encouraged to enter the competition. We are experimenting with a new idea during this show specifically directed toward local hobbyists. We will also have three classes for Anabantoids (excluding bettas) at this show – small, medium and large species. We are hoping this will encourage participation particularly from locals. There is an attachment that explains participation in these 3 categories. Any questions leave a message here or email

Great compliment from that little guy.
NATIVE FISHES / Keeping & Breeding the Gulf Killifish
« Last post by Bruce on July 01, 2017, 08:10:58 PM »
Mike has posted the July 2017 newsletter that can be found on the TBAS home page at

In this issue you will find an article I wrote about keeping and breeding the Gulf Killifish (Fundulus grandis).  It is fascinating when you are able to collect a fish in the wild and then bring it home, keeping it, and have it breed in your care.  In this case the fish were caught in the saltwater of Tampa Bay so the breeding process was a bit different than the freshwater fish that I primarily work with.  I encourage you to take a look at the newsletter and then share any comments or questions here on the TBAS forum.
