I have no clue what that is. Looks like a giant version of a sunburst goldfish...(Which when their small it seems are as tiny as tetra's.)

His eyes weird me out...He's kinda...Loco looking...

He sort of looks like a reeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaally old Red Devil? Or maybe a cross of a red devil and something else?

Albino Oscar. Just a bad angle and it doesn't look like he was taken care of as he should be :(

I love albino Oscars. My sisters roommate had a huge tank with one in it and he would stalk you as you passed. I was always too scared to feed him because I thought he'd take my finger off LOL

The fish in the photo appears to be some type of cichlid. It is certainly not a goldfish.

Dunno... probably pretty long time.. around 20 or so years or more I'd guess.

Oooh.. They also have veil tailed oscars as well! Pretty!



Edit.. Just googled the lifespan and it says anywhere from 10-20 years with good care.. so I was pretty close.
