Age?

Hello everyone! I have a simple question to ask: how can you tell what your bettas age is? Is there a way to tell at all? Sorry for the newbie question, but thanks in advance! :)

Ok... that site helped. Thanks! :) But the only thing is that my fish is a Crowtail, and not like the betta in the pictures... does this work for Crowntails as well? :/

Hello, and welcome to the forum. :)

You can't exactly tell their age, the bettas in stores are usually 6 months-1 year.
All the domestic bettas in stores are the same species; betta splendens. If the betta on the site is a splenden, then the age ratio will be the same.

It doesn't matter what tail type your betta is, they're all the same through the species. :D

Yes any tail type. And measuring length of bettas doesn't usually include their tail itself, so no problem. One thing that's helpful with that growth scale is that he gives a 1" marker so it's a bit easier to visualize. Have fun with your little guy ;)
