Okay, thanks. I never noticed that before.

My oldest was 7 or 8 but I picked 7 to be safe. I had him most of my childhood in a 2 gallon fish bowl with a heater and live plants, 2 weekly changes and he just kept going. He may have lived longer but unfortunately he jumped into another males tank and they fought to the death. My other fish was 5 and the ones before that were both 4-5. Maybe it's just my water, it's well water not city water.

Jackislost what do you do to get you're betta to live 11 years? That's more than double the highest average lifespan. I hope Sushi lives that long.
