how old is he

I just got 2 male bettas, and was wondering if there is a way to tell how old they are? The guy at the pet store was no help.

You really can't be sure.. if they're still small, they're probably under 6 months old, if they're full grown they're probably anywhere between 6 months to a year old.. their fins never stop growing tho, so you can estimate by their fin length

Unless you bought them direct from a breeder you can't know for sure the age. But most bettas in petstores are 4-6 months old.
