I've only had 2, my first one lived about 2.5 years, but he probably would have lasted longer, I made a mistake, leaving him in our kitchen over Christmas (we heat our house with coal-I know, I live in the middle of nowhere- and it gets really cold at night downstairs) instead of putting him in my room. He got too cold and died.

My friend, who is just in love with fish and has been keeping bettas all her life (and she's in grad school for marine conservation) has had a few fish that have lived about 4-5 years, but she says that 2-3 years is all you should expect (though we can always hope for more!), even in good conditions.

I think the longest I had a betta was my very first one that I had when I was about 16 and he lived 2.5-3 years. His name was Marley and I miss him.
