Question What are the signs of an older betta?

So, what are the signs of an older betta?

Usually they will be bigger than the younger ones, they will have longer fins(if they are not a plakat anyway) sometimes if they are really old they might have a scale or two missing or a scar... But younger ones could have that too...

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

Sometimes darkening of colour, such as turning to black more around the body and head, possibly lethargy and a more placid betta.

Current Betta:
Mulan: Blue/Green/Red HM Male

Those who now swim in the Rainbow Ponds:
Spike: VT Purple Male
Glaedr: CT Yellow Male
Ezio: DeT Dragonscale Male
Stu (Founder of the obsession): CT Blue Male
