So I've seen threads on breeding bettas and a lot of people say "petstore bettas are usually too old to breed"
I didn't want to hijack the thread, so I made this
So how old are bettas found at pet stores?
Petstore bettas vary greatly in age. The ones at my local Petco look like young 4-5 month olds, but I've seen others, in particular Walmart, they look older. The ones at the LFS that I frequent seem to come from different sources, some are obviously young and high quality some are questionable.
I don't understand why some stores have older bettas, unless they simply don't sell and sit on the shelf Not much profit in holding on to them long enough to get old.
