I always thought them to be the most beautiful of fish....but according to everything I have read, they do not live a long time in captivity even if they eat prepared foods as there is something they get in the wild that has not been replicated yet. That is sad to me. I would hate to get attached to a fish knowing it would die just because I had him. There are, of course, instances where people are fortunate to have their fish for a long while. I just personally, wouldn't want to take that chance.
I wish I could walk my fish ....
