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.
What percentage of the water should I change?Daily helps most. Every other day works too.
Fish meal is fine for fish. It's just the other parts of the fish, which fish in the wild eat anyway.
I never said it wasn't. I said whole (which includes all parts of the fish) is better.
Sorry, that's how it came across when you said "...(and not fish meal)", when in fact it's fine as one of the main ingredients. I just didn't want people to think it was bad.
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 timeProbably 2 years and 3 monthsish. Maybe longer. THey usually have about 3 year life spans, right?
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 have heard 3 to 5 years.

Oops! 2.5 YEARS old. *Mornings....*yes 2.5 months old because males are sold from 4-5months old and females are sold from 3-4months old!
As in tell the age of a mature fish? Not at all that I'm aware of.Hi all!
I was wondering if there is some way to tell how old your betta fish is?
I meant tell how old he is like when he was born. I am gonna guess and say he was about 6 months old when I got him, so that puts his birthday sometime in November/December.As in tell the age of a mature fish? Not at all that I'm aware of.
Yeah. Maybe...I'm guessing you can sort of tell by their color and tail size.
