Most petstore fish are generally 4-6 months of age. Some older... because they sit for some time.

You really can't tell exactly how old they are. But they are ususally between 3-6 months, depending on where you get them.

Oh, and 7 pellets sounds like a little too much for him. I'd give him 2 pellets two times a day.

Yeah, what doggyhog said. I could pour my whole container of pellets in and my girls would eat them happily. Lol.

But 4-6 pellets a day (2/3 pellets twice a day) is what's reccomended. Otherwise they can get bloated and very sick. Kind of like people. You CAN eat a lot, but it's not healthy for you to eat in excess.

Overfeeding your betta will cause all kinds of digestive problems.
