About Us

The BLA is a group a group of enthusiasts dedicated to promoting the hobby of keeping and breeding freshwater livebearing fishes.

Our aims are:

  •  To provide BLA members with information on the maintenance and breeding of the above families.
  •  To encourage the breeding and distribution of  freshwater livebearers

We publish a magazine 4 times a year and have yearly events, these consists of talks and and an auction and are a great opportunity to meet other members and to swap fish.
