The Holland Betta Show 2016
19-21 August 2016
Bettas4all.nl is proud to announce the 7th edition of the Holland Betta Show which will be held during the 24th edition of the Holland Koi Show in the beautiful Castle Gardens of Arcen, the Netherlands.
The Holland Betta Show 2016 can be found in the tent of the Holland Aquarium Show and is a unique opportunity for Bettas4all to introduce our beautiful hobby to the public. A dedicated team of experienced betta hobbyists will provide you with all the necessary information with respect to the keeping, breeding and showing of show bettas.
At the show approximately 300 show Bettas of different color and finnage varieties will be shown. The fish will be judged on vitality, color, finnage, bodyshape and overall appearance by a team of experienced hobbyists according to the Bettas4all Standard© to determine the winners of the various showclasses and the special prices. It will also be possible for the visitors to purchase some quality fish for a reasonable price.
This year a unique additional competition will be added to the Holland Betta Show 2016:
“Koi” Bettas judged by Koi judges!
Besides being judged according to the Bettas4all Standard©, all bettas showing a “koi marble” fish which are entered will be judged according to their pattern by real certified Koi Judges.
In the past 6 years the Holland Betta Show has positioned itself as a well-known event within the European Betta scene with some impressive statistics:
- Holland Betta Show 2010: 265 showbettas by 26 breeders of 7 European countries.
- Holland Betta Show 2011: 308 showbettas by 36 breeders of 6 European countries.
- Holland Betta Show 2012: 308 showbettas by 36 breeders of 7 European countries.

- Holland Betta Show 2014: 308 showbettas by 34 breeders of 12 European countries.
- Holland Betta Show 2015: 308 showbettas by 45 breeders of 14 European countries.
Off course this all would not have been possible without the help of the hobbyists/breeders

Benching of the fish takes place on Thursday 18th August 2016.
