thanks guys.

im guessing he's between 5 and 6 years since he was full grown when i bought him and i've had him now for a little over four years. I've never cried when a fish died but when this little dude does im pretty sure I will. He's got the best personality. He gets so excited when i go to visit him he can hardly control himself. its funny now because he's handicapped but he still tries. He'll only do it for me, if a stranger goes to look at him he just stares and could care less but as soon as i come near he goes nuts

He's had a great long life. Kudos to you for having a betta over 4 years old. You don't hear about that every day.

I'm not sure how he's survived this long. I admit alot of times he hasn't gotten the best care, especially when I was really busy with school and work. Sometimes he would go up to a week without being fed and a month or more without a water change He's never been sick or had a diesese though, he's just a really tough fish I guess.

Awww....
That old man is going too live a great rest of his life for sure!
If you need a plant for him to rest on, use this thing I have for Lucky!

A naturalistic leaf hammock for your Betta to rest on that also allows your Betta to rest near the surface of the water, just like they do in nature.
  • Attaches to Betta enclosure with suction cup (included)
  • Train your Betta to use the Betta Bed Leaf Hammock by feeding your Betta above the leaf
  • As water evaporates, be sure to add more water to allow your Betta to swim onto the leaf

It's funny to me how aged he looks. Very tough guy, indeed. I can only hope Roy Cherry is able to live such a prosperous life, as well.

As for the betta hammock, numerous members have reported rusting in the base of those where they fit into the suction cup. Just something to take note of, all ye interested.
