    Just curious (Beta's)

    How long do they usually live for?

    I'll have had mine for 2 yrs in March

    Hopefully he'll survive our move! He did good on the other moves, so he should.

    I had one for over 2 years. Mr Blue Fish was his name I was heartbroken when he died.

    Others I've had only last a few months.

    Well, we had Red, the longest living beta in our lifetime. He lived for almost 5 years.

    Grinch lived for about 3 1/2 years.

    Sam didn't do too well, he was gone in about 6 months.

    Have you given him a name yet?

    He's a world-class traveler I'm sure he'll be good with the move.

    Yes he is! The poor guy does deserve a name for surviving all that (nope, no name still, lol)

    I hope mine lasts for more than 2 yrs! I'll be sad when he dies...been through it all w/ me
