    I've been planning for a betta for a while now and I've been told that it is best to buy them from small breeders while they're YOUNG, for longest life. How old is "young?"

    About 6 months I'd say... bettas can live for 4 years fairly easily. Most breeders only sell young fish anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it.

    So 4 months is fine right? Meaning they're still developing and not adults yet?

    Yeah that's fine. The thing that will really determine your bettas lifespan and growth is how it does in your tank. Breeders usually sell fish as fast as possible to clear space up :)
