The IBC Species Maintenance Program is a clearinghouse and resource center for all existing available information on Betta species, promotes continued research to learn as much as we can about these species and their needs, provides stock cataloging, breeder networking and offers judging guidance.

Level One changes are complete, all species pages match the new format
