Yup... a may have everyone beaten...twice!
Yellow tail damsel added to tank: Oct 30, 1993. 10yrs, 5 months. Still around.
Convict damsel added to tank: May 14, 1994. 9 yrs, 10 months. Still around.
, these are the ONLY two fish in my tank. Convict is likely to go first as he seems to have a growing gill tumor. (but I said that over a year ago and he shows no sign of having any slowing down)
I'll be talking to the fish tonight and I'll let them know they've done pretty well. I expect they will be "happy", but they'll probably complain that things are like they were in the good old days....and that kids these days show no respect for their elders...
