Interesting questions, any interesting answers?

Hello! I have heard a few myths (and they aren't the usual). Does anyone know whether they are true, or what the answer is? :)
1) Crowntail bettas usually have the shortest lifespan.
2) Female bettas live several months to a year longer than males.
3) Crowntail bettas are the most aggressive.
Now for the actual questions!
1) What betta species (tail type ;)) lives the longest?
2) Do female bettas enjoy company?
3) Is it true that pet store bettas only live 2 years?
Someone please answer these, I'm very interested in the answers! :D

Mirage - Male DBT Rocky - Male HMPK red copper
Daisy - Female HM Moonlight - Male HMDBT
Captain - baby betta
Gryffindor - very sick rescue HMDBTPK

3) Crowntail bettas are the most aggressive.

I do have a crowntail and have observed his behaveour and i think that he's much more agressive than any other betta that ive ever seen except Demon (my besties betta crowntail as well he's crazy...)

1) Crowntail bettas usually have the shortest lifespan.- I don't believe so... it just seems a bit off. :/
2) Female bettas live several months to a year longer than males. Not in my experience.
3) Crowntail bettas are the most aggressive. Strongly disagree!! While all the CTs I've had were quite mean, I've found PKs are the meanest.
Now for the actual questions!
1) What betta species (tail type ;)) lives the longest? I honestly think it depends on the overall health of the betta itself. Stress is also a factor for short lives.
2) Do female bettas enjoy company? IMO, no bettas enjoy company. ;) No fishy company, anyway.
3) Is it true that pet store bettas only live 2 years? Heck no. My first betta lived 4-5 years. :)

Bummer, they were all shot down! Bang, bang, boom! :P Hmmm... interesting! Bummer though, it'd be neat if girls had an average longer lifespan. Anyone else wanna have a go??

It's not "confirmed" that Crowntails are more aggressive. Mine is the LEAST aggressive of all of my Bettas!

Awww, he's pretty! His fins look like they would be huge if he did flare, lil docile guy! :P When I first got my VT, he never ever flared. Same with my HM at first. Now they both flare like nuts!!

I've had him for several months, and he only flares his gills a BIT once in a while. Usually if I stick my finger in the water.
