I heard of someones betta living to be almost 5 years old! Thats really old though. I believe average is 2-3 years.

I'd say between 3-5 years is the average. 6 years is a *very* long lived betta.

I had one that was over 4 years old when he died last April. He lived in a half gallon bowl. He had no heater and no filtration, but I did regular water changes and fed him a proper diet.
