My first fish was a black moor goldfish I shared with my sisters. He lived in a bowl for about a month before he succumbed. I was 7 and I cried until mum bought us another.

Well, if you mean family fish. I had a Betta named Martini.
My first fish I bought myself, 3 gallon: 4 black neons, 12 white mountain minnows. Not my best moment lived an entire 3 years together. then into a 10 gallon no cycled. Still not good, then added more fish. Had 2 black neons live for 6 years!

My very first fish was a Goldie that I had won at a fair. I did not have a tragic ending with mine though. He lived for nine years with my second fish (an Oscar) in a 90 gallon until we rehomed him to a pond

Oh yes I don't think I would ever attempt that again. I was young and wanted anything and everything of pretty color in my moms tank

When I was really little, I had a Dalmatian Molly first but my first fish I got after I was serious about fish was a dwarf gourami

My first fish were a blue dwarf gourami, otto, 3 neon tetra and 3 long finned red minor tetra given to me in a bud light beer pitcher. My old neighbour asked us if we wanted them. He did give us the 20 gal tank but he cleaned it first hence the beer pitcher. He wanted the pitcher back

It was a Goldie from a.........WEDDING! I'm always the oddball, not a fair or carnival, a wedding. Goldfish were put in tiny 1 cup (yes, ONE literal MEASUREMENT OF WATER CUP) and there were a lot of not so happy parents taking goldfish home home that day, since there was a big announcement saying they were giveing away the goldfish after the wedding. I didn't go, my mom brought it home. He was quickly out inba one gallon tank bowl, but I broke it by accident and upgraded to a 5 gallon Walmart kit, and bought some "friends". A rather large catfish (which went back after a couple days), some neons a Otto and a zebra danio. The Goldie died after 6 months and the rest lived a year. I upgraded to a 20 at that time, and got me a basic edgumacation on fish from AA. Now I've got my 45 long, and I'm a Nazi about good cleanliness in the tank now.
