Age of Betta?

Is there any way to tell the age of your betta? Also, do I have to turn off the light (lighted hood of tank) for them at night?

Yep, turn off the light at night! Bettas like to sleep :)

There really isn't any way to tell the age of a betta. Even if he is very small, he may be young or he may just be a small betta.

Yes, they need day/night cycles just like we do, so turn the light off at night. :)

I'm not even sure that turning the light on does them any good, as long as there is sunlight coming into the room during the day. I'll be gone for nine days, and I've told my husband not to bother turning the aquarium light on at night - he'll probably mess something up, so better he doesn't touch it. When the light is on, I think it's more decorative for the humans than beneficial to the betta!!
