Welcome to the British Livebearer Association
The B.L.A is a group a group of enthusiasts dedicated to promoting the hobby of keeping and breeding freshwater livebearing fishes.
We are holding our annual autumn weekend show in collaboration with our sister association – Fancy Guppies UK.
The show will consist of talks, the final leg of the Fancy Guppy league, ‘ask the expert’, Biotope displays, livebearer and Guppy auctions, Endler and Goodeid shows and AGM’s for both associations.
IBM Conference rooms,
The speakers and subjects from both groups have yet to be confirmed.
Guppy and Livebearer auctions
The Fancy Guppies association will auction off some of the show Guppies following the announcement of the show results and presentations.
There is the chance to pick up those special guppies you really liked the look of when viewing the contestants during the auction.
The livebearer auction will complete the day with an auction of mainly wild type species, this is the best chance to find that species you have wanted for some time.
Following on from last year’s display we are going to host an Endler show, this is an informal event where we invite you to bring in your best pair or pairs of Endlers to display and for our judge to award points. The winners down to third place will receive a prize. Remember The main point of this is member participation.
A new area for us, this will follow the same format as for the Endler show but this time with Goodeids, again this is put out to the membership and we really need your participation for this to work.
The most important part of these shows is to provide the opportunity for you to meet some of our other members and discuss topics from species husbandry/breeding to tips on showing fish.
