Betta Lifespan?

Is there a way to determine how old a betta is? By size perhaps? MY VT, Grouper is a little over an inch not including his tail. What is the lifespan of a betta?

Mature males generally have longer fins and brighter colours than younger bettas. In the wild bettas live up to about five, and in captivity usually up to three or four. Some rare bettas have even lived up to nine!
