Well my blue Betta fish, whom I call Red, has turned 4 years old as of this morning September 3, 2007. Not too bad for the lone Betta fish that sits on my desktop. He use to have company, but they've all moved out or have moved on to the great fish aquarium in the sky. As a huge lover of Betta fish I just thought I'd share the news with you all considering the average lifespan of a well cared for Betta fish is about 2-3 years. And the best part? He still continues to build pretty decent size bubble nests. Keep on trucking Red!
So what's the longest your Betta fish has lived for? For me this would be the longest so far. Leave a comment and let us know how old your Betta is!
