My oldest lived till he was FIVE and he was in a tiny bowl with no heater! I bet money that Paarthurnax, who lives like a king, won't live to be that old (of course I obviously WANT him too).

The oldest I have alive is about 7 months. I got him in Alaska and he survived the car ride to NY. His name is Mr Magic Mushrooms. I would of had some older ones but they never made it out of the Yukon alive :(

I've currently had my oldest betta for a year now. I don't know how old he was when I got him, but he had his first purchase birthday this month. I bought a veil tail not long ago that I think was given up to the pet store for re-sale.

My mom who got me hooked on bettas had moose a veil tail for definitely 3 years. I think I posted when he died, his body was as big as a thumb, he was huge.

.....Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!
Arm yourself with knowledge. Consider advise. Make informed decisions.

Fishy lived 3, almost 4 years. He looked to have died of old age. 1 year he wasn't as active as he used to be. Just moped around. Swam up for food, air and occasionally did a few laps. But mostly moped.
Cal lasted about a month with me :'( He died of by mysterious blue betta attacker

I've had Spike for aprox 2-3 months now. Feels like it's been longer.
