How old is your oldest fish?

I currently have a clownfish that is over 11 years old.
My gold stripe maroon clown pair are approx 26 years old this year and still laying eggs.

My original ocellaris was 25 (she was tank raised and I got her at about 6 months old) and spawning every 9 days when I lost my tank to a GFI failure. My one spit foxface rabbit fish was 9 years at the time and coral beauty was 7.

I had a flame hawk that carpet surfed a a couple months shy of me having it 20 years.

I’m convinced that most of our fish can live very long in captivity, much longer than books say and much longer than the wild.

Not a fish, but I have had my box turtle for about 49 years, and she is about the same size as when I found her. I have also had her longer than my brother - as a kid I always said she had seniority

My oldest. My clowns I've had for 6 months as of a couple days ago. LoL.

Just getting back into reeding after 22 year hiatus. Hope mine will live as long as all of you alls. Great fish parents.

My clown pair are 6 years old. Followed by my lyretail anthias at 3.5 years in my tank but were older at purchase so they may be 4.5 or 5 or so? Maybe someone can help approximate from this Pic at the LFS the day I got them in Nov 2020

I've got a clownfish that is 18 or 19 years old (only has one eye now but is as mean as ever :)). I've also got a yellow tang that has been with me for 12 or so years.

At the minute it’s my 5-6 year old Jade Wrasse, who considering he’s meant to be the most aggressive wrasse… he’s not doing a great job at it and instead hides a ton in the 5’ tank.

10 year old clown! Shes almost 11. Adopted her almost a year ago. Lost my beloved purple tang HLLE rescue last month. LFS said she was six or seven years old. Had her for a year. Miss her :(
