Mine is a danio I got maybe 3 years ago. Between 2.5 and 3 years. He just won't die. I've even put sick fish in with him cuz I had nowhere else to put them, and I didn't want their tankmates to get sick. He's the Highlander I think.

I have a breeder pair of Japanese Koi, they were 3 years old when I got them about 3 years ago. They are red and white and about 14 - 17" in length. They are beautiful. They spawn several times a year.

I have had my gold fish for almost 18 months now. I must consider myself specially lucky. First there were two goldfish in a 1G bowl with water change twice a week. Then they went to a 5G and then to a 10G. Later two more were added and a few months ago, they all moved to a 20G long.

I had a very favorite Danio that died yesterday. I had him for a year or so. Thought he will live longer but he endedup with Dropsy. Hope this thread continues.

I finally looked through all my old reciepts to find out exactly how long my current fish have been in there, and I found that I bought the first set of cardinals last December. So about 8 months. I guess that's pretty good for cardinals, I must be doing something right .

Where shall i start, i suppose the oldest fish that i have kept was my plecostamus which i was given at 2" long in 1982, he died last year at the grand old age of 21. He was 19inches long when he died.
Next was my trio of Arius seemani ( Shark cats )They were brought from my local aquarium shop in 1995 and they are now swimming in the London Aquarium, mainly because the out grew my 6x2x2 tank that i was keeping them in. The biggest one of the trio was 20inces long and the other two were close behind.
I also had a group of Albino Corydorus which were brought in 1994 and the last one of them died in january this year, which made him 9yrs old.[/b]

" There is to much information in this hobby to learn in one lifetime "
But with the help of Aquarium Advice we can
have a good try.
