Can you tell how old a betta is?

I'm just wondering if there's anyway to tell how old a betta is?
I've heard that you could tell by the length of the fins.
How old do betta's get?

Bettas on average live 3-4 years. When you buy them from stores, they are most likely around 1 year old. There isn't a clear way on how to tell their age from what I know, but there might be.

cut them in half and count the rings! lol jk jk, but seriously, you can count on having them 1-2 years from their purchase date. they are full grown in about a year to a year and a half, anything beyond that it gets tricky to tell.

o.kay thanks. I was wondering because Cosmo is smaller than the other betta's I've owned. I thought maybe he was younger.
He's very playfull too.
