Ive had conflicting info. about this, anywhere from 2-8 yrs, and am just curious how long they would live on average. Mine has been alive for 4 yrs.

I think 4 years is kinda old for a normal betta. The longest I had one was for 2.5 years, but he was big when I bought him. I have never heard of a betta living 8 years, but I guess it is possible.

Under ideal laboratory conditions Bettas have lived 10 or more years but on average, 2-5 years. If yours is 4 years old that is very good! How is his health and activity level now?

My betta is the same as he's always been. He never was very active unless there's food around.

Your betta is doing very well to live to 4. We'd love to see a pic of him. Phloxface is right on the age range on Bettas and you may have one that will go past the 5 years as some do.
