California Betta Society

Membership Information

CBS is a completely free and open club. All you have to do is send your email address to and we'll add you to the mailing list of our upcoming shows. If you are close enough to come to meetings and shows, please also let us know what city you live in so we can get a range of areas for the meetings.

We do most of our conversations outside of meetings on Facebook. Everybody can join our facebook group and join in conversation, whether you're a dues-paying CBS member or not (you don't even have to be local to be part of the facebook!). Join us on the California Betta Society Facebook group.

Membership dues are voluntary. If you do want to contribute, the money from membership dues help cover the expenses associated with running the club, including maintaining the web site and staging the annual IBC shows. Dues cover one year of membership from the date of payment. If you don't pay dues, you can still come to our meetings and go to our shows. The dues are to help us so we can continue to provide these for everybody's betta enjoyment.

If you'd like to be a dues-paying member, membership is $10.00/year. Email us and let us know you'd like to be a voluntary dues-membership and we'll send you the paypal address to send it to. (We took the paypal button off the website because a lot of people were simply clicking on it without seeing it was voluntary. ^^;)

If you have any questions, please send email to and we'll do our best to answer.
