Virtual Bettas4all Show @ Vivarium Online – November 2020

Due to the current COVID-19 situation affecting the entire world, it currently is impossible for European hobbyists to physically meet at Betta Shows. This year, Bettas4all & Betta Freaks have already hosted two successful online shows in May and August 2020 which gave European hobbyists the chance to show their fish in a virtual environment.

Bettas4all & Bettafreaks are proud to announce the 3rd and last show of 2020! The Virtual Bettas4all Show @ Vivarium Online will enable breeders from all over Europe to share their work in a responsible way by social distancing while still enjoying sharing our fish within the hobby, and do our part to flatten the curve.

For this event we will collaborate with our friends of Vivarium, the team behind one of the biggest aquaristic events of Europe. Due to COVID-19 they were also forced to cancel their main event and decided to organize an online alternative with an online exhibition hall and a live broadcasts on YouTube during the weekend 28th and 29th of November. During this weekend the videos of the various show classes will become available for the public to vote for their personal favorites.

At the Virtual Bettas4all Show @ Vivarium Online fish are judged via video entries on vitality, color, finnage, body shape and overall appearance, by a team of experienced judges according to the Bettas4all Standard©. It is clear that judging fish from a video by no means can be compared by watching fish live at a show, but it is the best thing we can offer the Betta community in Europe at the moment.  As always, the Bettas4all Judging Team will do their uttermost best to determine the winners of the various show classes and the special awards.

Participants (European hobbyists only) can enter in the following classes:

Regular show classes: The fish must be self-bred by the participant and is currently swimming in his/her fish room (matter of trust). Maximum of 5 Entries per hobbyist.

Online registration is possible from Friday 16 October 2020 to Friday 30 October 2020 (18:00 UTC). Videos can be Virtually Benched up to Saturday 31st of October 2020 (18:00 UTC).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note to first register your fish before you start filming your fish because the unique, personally assigned show tank number must be shown in the video (written or printed on paper, digital not allowed). For more information on the minimum requirements of the videos, how to register and upload videos, and judging procedures can be found under General information Virtual Bettas4all Show @ Vivarium Online.

We are looking forward to your participation & support!

With kind regards,

The Virtual Bettas4all Show Team
