The Betta Australis Offical Website...

Recommended Posts

OK, I've seen a few of you peeking while I'm slaving away on the site... *lol* I thought I might as well bring it out into the open.

The Betta Australis web site is now online! I still have a lot of content to add and a few minor layout changes, but the general framework is there. Throughout the week, I'll be adding more and more content, so don't forget to check back.

http://bettaaustralis.com

For those members who want to register to view the private section, I'm not setting up users or the private section until I finish the public side of things. The members section will contain meeting minutes, club documents, electronic club welcome packs and much more...

Looks very smart J, what's the CMS you're using for that site? (if indeed it is one)

Can't wait to see it with all the care sheets and photos, looks like no small feat!

oh p.s. your Betta Australis image in your signature links to BrisBetta website... i'm a lazy clicker!

Noice!

Thanks Ness, I'm building it on Joomla. Too hard not to use a CMS for a site that has the potential to get HUGE!

I'm currently working on a sample gallery. It should be uploaded in 10 mins :D

I have just finished uploading the Betta Care Sheet to the website and was about to copy and paste it to create a downloadable PDF version, then I discovered a little module that I could add to the page to self generate one in a single click. I am impressed and it has allowed me to go to bed earlier than expected...

It turned this into this!

Looks fantastic mate. You are doing a fantastic job. I hope people do appreciate the time and effort you have put into getting the club to this point. None of it would have happened without your effort and drive. :-).

Get excited people, this is the official Aussie chapter of the IBC. Join the club, get involved, this is YOUR club. Lots of up coming events, shows ect. For local members, come along to the meeting, tell us what you want out of the club, participate. :-). For not so local members, you can still be active in the club. We will have monthly draws for ALL members, prizes posted out. Lots of ideas in the works to allow all members to participate in upcoming comps and shows.

A nice Betta Australis Best In Show trophy would look good in YOUR house.

I might have been the other early on... :P

I haven't got a lot of top qual pics that meet your request, but this was a PK boy that I initially tried to breed with another boy (he was one of my first bettas/breeding attempts - noooob mistake!).

And here's the boy that tested his sexual identity LOL

Looks very professional mate. Every time I look there are always people looking. Even at 7am there are a few. :-).

Maybe a clinic/disease area could be something to add in the future. Just an idea.

I can't remember if I've comment on how great this is or not?

Well, you've all done a wonderful job - it's so exciting Betta Australis is up and running! All your work has payed off now. :Dapplaud.gif.gif

Popped the Banner/link onto my blog, should get a few hits from that... generally get around 300 daily on average.

@Paul, that's great - the PK photo, not your failed boy on boy spawning attempt *lol*

@Busman- I know I'm half asleep - I first read your comment as suggesting that the site had so many people looking because they were in a disease clinic. I was trying to work out the punchline before I re-read it *lol*

@Sarah - thanks :) 300 hits a day you say? That's very impressive!!!

Yes, they came through. Thanks. A lot I hadn't seen before - you must have been sitting on those...lol

See what you mean about rare. I've heard of a glass catfish, but never a glass betta! Speaking of catfish, I think that photo of the catfish you sent through needs to go into the clinic page... It looks a little "furry" mind you I have no idea how to treat that condition.

Lol. Furry catfish is cured with tummy rub. :-).

Glass betta is the very rare, very expensive black orchid that has completely cello'd out with blue irids.
