Very true!

Aw...they accidentally get siphoned?

I'm guesstimating that my boy is 4-6 months old. His fins are not short, but I don't think they are fully developed either. However, his body is still rather small...about 1.5 inches.

Betta Growth/Age Article with Pics!

(Forgive me if this has already been posted on this site)

Wonderful article and growth chart with pictures... It helped me a lot because it can be difficult to determine the age of bettas unless you know the exact spawn date. I hope this helps other people too. Enjoy!
