I got all of my fish at once when they were still small and growing. Had them for approx. 2 years. So I suppose all of my fish are anywhere between 2 - 2.5 years of age.

My oldest fish right now is Marty and he is 8 1/2 months old now. He is the oldest Betta I have and I may have an older Otocinclus catfish but I do not remember quite when I got Tuck but he is very nearly as old or older, perhaps 9 months old. I have only been keeping fish for 13 months though.

Bill the Tinfoil Barb is almost 4 yrs old. His 2 friends passed a couple years ago. He now has 3 friends who are much smaller than him...............for now.

Like 4 month old? Be advised I just rehomed all my fish a month ago and got the tetras I have now. I'm assuming they were only 3 months old when I got them...they look pretty young.

Oldest fish ever: a Pseudotropheus socolofi (Powder Blue) cichlid, who was 5 when I sold him back to the LFS since I had to tear down my tank.
