Not sure if anyone's started a thread that has to do with this, if so - please direct me to it. I'm doing a general survey about freshwater fish lifespans. Some are pretty well known, some not so much. What I'd really like to know is: how long have most of you kept your fish for? Are there some fish you've had around for ages that you're most attached to? Have some fish you've had lived well beyond their life expectancies? Feel free to comment, post pics and share stories!
I'll go first
Here is Shadow, my male black lace angel. He had a gorgeous mate back in his day, but she passed on about 2 years ago, who laid eggs about three times, but ate them before I could remove them each time. Shadow is 6 yrs old now, is still spunky, and eats like a pig!
These 2 diamond tetras are 5 yrs old! They are the only ones left from my original school of 6 tetras.
it's a blurry pic, I know - but they are still very fast!
