Curious. For all of you, what’s your oldest fish as of 2020? Would appreciate it if you could give the following:

1. What type of fish is it?

2. How long have you had it for?

3. How big was it when you bought it?

4. Is it still alive?

5. Where did you buy it?

6. What is your tank size and its tank mates?

Would love to hear from you guys!

Could also be an invert or even coral!

My oldest invert is a mantis that hitched hiked, rarely see it though, ate a lot of fish,
Had it for as long as I had my tank 4yrs
Was about 1inch when I found it
I hope it’s dead
My tank is a 20 gallon cube with a lubbocki, gramma and a spriger damsel

Pair of misbar percula clownfish I've had for about 11 years now... Got the pair as fresh babies from my local club's yearly auction. 25'ish cube with 2 cardinals, mandarin and a tailspot blenny...

My oldest fish is my purple tang. I bought it on January 18 of 2006 (birthday present to myself, apparently). It will be 15 years that I’ve had it this coming January. It was a baby when I bought it. The body was about the size of my thumbnail and with the fins, maybe 2 inches tall? It was pretty small. I set my 180 gallon tank up in February of 2002, so it has spent its whole life there. I bought it at an LFS near me.
