I had a blue gourami 10 years. After he died I gave up fish keeping until recently.

I got into fishkeeping about 3 years ago. My oldest fish is a bronze cory that's almost 3 now. He's still going strong and was trying to spawn last night with his best buddy.

I stand corrected.. dang I didn't realize those feeder fish could get so big Apparently over 2 feet long, if you include the tail.

Ya. Goldfish get huge and can live for a really long time. I think the record is like 40 years.

My oldest fish is a koi of mine named Umi. I bought her in fall 2006; she was probably spawned in spring of that year. That makes her 7 right now. She will probably live another 10-15 years. Umi is older than half of my furry pets. Oldest koi on record was a beauty named Hanako. She was 226 when she died. This is her story.

The oldest fish I've ever had is the one I currently have, which is six or seven months now. My aunt has Koi at her house and they are at the bare minimum 20 years old and still healthy and happy!

My oldest fish was 3 when he died. He was a goldfish that I had won when I was younger.
