  1. National IBA Betta Competition

    The Caboolture Show Society, Queensland Aquarium Hobbyists and Betta Australis are once again hosting a National IBA Betta Competition at this year's Caboolture Show. Entry is open to everyone. Entrants are not required to be a member of, or affiliated with, any club, society or organisation. Entry fee just $2 Entries close at 10pm Friday 26th May 2017. https://cabooltureshow.com.au/ (scroll to the bottom of the page for the entry form) We are once again fortunate enough to have Mrs Emily (Lulu) Molenaar as Judge. Lulu first started judging Bettas in 2013 and has been lucky enough to have gained experience judging in Malaysia and Singapore, as well as in Australia, with some of the most experienced Betta experts in the world. Lulu was the first Australian to win Best in Show at an International Betta Show and the first ever to win the coveted Best Australian Bred at Australia's first IBA Show in 2014. Pictured below are 2 of last year's winning Siamese Fighting Fish. Think your fish is better? Then here's your chance to prove it!

  10. Honey blue eyes

    Yes, you can purchase them in any other state EXCEPT Queensland. In QLD you cannot catch from the wild. You cannot trade or swap, only give as a gift. There is no such thing as a licence to keep and sell them. Offering them as a "gift" when you buy other items is also illegal. Makes sense? Of course not - it's the a government ruling.
  11. Betta Australis Club Meeting Sep 22nd 2015

    Meeting was put back a week due to the conference and show. Club members watched a slide show of the winning fish and scenes from around the show, then Mr Steve Baines presented an interesting talk on making artificial tank backgrounds. Next meeting October 20th 2015. Held at Ace Comics and Games Magic Room. Annerley Arcade, 478 Ipswich Road, Annerley QLD 4103. Contact bettaaustralis@outlook.com to join the club or for more details.
  12. How about some pictures of your stand at Mt Gravatt Show?

    Was a nice little display. The show was interesting too. The historical society had a great display of photos and prize cards from "days gone by". Things certainly have changed.
