I'll have my Betta two years in September. He didn't seem like a baby when I brought him home. How long would you think he is?

Probably 2 years and 3 monthsish. Maybe longer. THey usually have about 3 year life spans, right?
I have heard 3 to 5 years. Just wondering how long it took to have him shipped to the store and how long before I found him and picked him up...an average amount of time

If you mean his age, I'd agree with about 2.4 years. If you mean how long he went from most likely a wholesaler to the store then to you, I'd say maybe a month. At a store I work at, if certain bettas aren't sold within a month, we rotate who's in front and the ones who have been there longer either move to the back or if peaceful enough go into certain tanks. So it could be longer based on if where you got him does that sort of rotation or not.

I'd say 2.5 years old, they normally are between 3-4 months old when they get to the store, on average some "less pretty" bettas can sit there for several months before they are picked (I watched a veiltail male of Vanda coloring sit for 2-3 months before I was able to show him off to someone who immediately fell in love with him and his color, he was a peachy red with darker red spots in his fins).

yes 2.5 months old because males are sold from 4-5months old and females are sold from 3-4months old!
