In our local context, ability to keep for 3 years or more is an achievement.Goldfish here do not go thru a dormant period of hibernation during winter which may have acceralated its lifespan in some sense.

Here is a previous discussion on this topic:

The oldest goldfish on record was a fish named Tish which reportedly lived for 43 years

10-25 years are not uncommon

but overhere we tend to peak the fish too fast resulting in early deterioration and hasten degeneration.

We just can't maintain its peak for long blush.gif

Anyone has that 长生不老 elixir please let me know good_very.gif

Those went to Bukit Timah competition, should have noticed a video playing on the big screen. There was a segment on this fish and the old couples.

haha, there is some confusion. Some history....

This goldfish is my own accidental spawn (not pure oranda! hence the name "oranchu").

1st pic dated April 2004: fish approximately 8~10 months old, resided in 50L (if i remember correctly) green water tub).

2nd pic date August 2004: fish spend time in an outdoor green water pond. Big transformation.

I was overseas between Oct 04 till recently, and the fish is in the care of friends (still green water). Hence the credit is not with me. Notice the size and head growth? For sure it is not a beauty king though blush.gif
