Here is a picture of his face now.
You can see the grey in a part of his face there

Well you know, 5+ is a pretty good age for a betta.

as long as the grey isn't fuzzy and he is acting/eating normally, I wouldn't worry.

Well I've noticed bettas from the store near me last 2-3 years, while Ralph's Pet Store (he retired ;( ) had bettas living passed 4-5. Some bettas do generally live long lives And your fella is at a very good age.

his beta is 1 year 4 months old, not 5 years.

Buddha looks just like Baloo! and unfortunately, they have the same problem :/

About a year ad four months. (I was told to add 1 year to a betta's age because he was a pet store fish, and I had him for 4 years, but he might be older)


Whoops, then maybe the "year" was meant as a "month" then?


The greying isn't a "problem". Georgie, Shadow, and Riddle (all BLUES) had/have a grey chin. My oranges did too, along with Shiloh - a purpley fella.

Oh you would know much better than I would how long a fish sits on a shelf, I have no idea. But ti seems somewhere someone started thinking this fish is 4-5 years old, and it isn't.

Well that makes me feel better that all those fish had grey chins :)
