I chose 2 years, but I'm estimating Rakki's age since I didn't buy him from a store. He was a rescue who was left behind in a rental house when the renter moved out. I'm guessing he's somewhere between 2 and 2.5 years old.

I've not kept bettas long enough to choose an option from the poll yet, though Xerxes (bought may 1st this year) is probably closest to a year old, my delta boys are likely younger.

I'd be very surprised to find a betta that lived 9+ years, I don't think they're really built for such a lifespan.

My avatar betta is at least 5 years old (and still doing quite well **knock on wood**)
Can't remember when I actually got him, but I know I have definitely had him since at least the spring/summer of 2010.
