Yeah ive had my betta for 8 months now so i think he is about a year old now. I dont expect him to last to an old age because i suspect his genetics are not very good but we shall see...

Genetics diets and exercise are what you need for health inbred fish grow slower and live shorter with more genetics you could get more interesting Bettas at my pet stores the fish are culls so the fish you are not of extreme quality for what they are being bred for so around here the show fish the fighters and the pets might be close fully related they are even from thialand. Another myth is they only use the labyrinth only when in seasonal droughts but the thousands of gallons they live in have low oxygen content do to low movement high temp. Also no matter the oxygen content they have to get some air from the surface or they drown. Scientist put Bettas in highly oxengated water and removed the labyrinth they all died.

Yeah well based on the fullness of his fins and his color he was probably not bred with much care. I have heard about that study where they removed the labrynths...

The one inch rule is a big myth like three dwarf Indian puffers need at least a ten gallon tank.

Yeah the one inch rule is a myth for everything except it can work for betta. But for a goldfish it is definately not true...
