How do you figure out how old your Betta is?

Sure, you know how long it has been since you brought them home, but you really have no idea how old they are when you get them. They could have been in the store for aeons.

Ok, I guess you can sorta guess from their size?

I've had George for a couple of weeks now and I think he is one of the older Bettas cuz he's quite large at (guesstimating) 1.5" body length (not counting tail).

So I just went to his tank with a tape measure, one of those flexible dressmaker tape measures, white with red print. I held it up to the tank to see if I could measure him as he came closer to the front. Oooooh, he did NOT like the tape measure at all. Started flaring and all. I think he is at least 1.5 inches long.

How old do you think George is?

My betta that I have right now is at least 4. I'm pretty sure that I've had him 3 1/2 to 4 years.

My first couple lived a year and a half. I had one that died two days after I got him.

I had one that lived for 3 1/2 years. He was probably close to a year old when I got him.
