Some have asked how long fish live, I just lost one of my 2 ocellaris clownfish. Bought them in 1992.
Is that one of the two at your house that you were just telling me about last saturday?? :cry:

Don't be sad. They obviously had a long and healthy life... and probably bizarre and interesting over there as well. :)

My clowns are only 6 years old, and they were the first saltwater fish I had. Hopefully they have many years to live.

Sorry to hear about your loss Dirk. I had a piranha I bought when I was 9. At 23 (14 years later) I tried to bring it with me to graduate school from Minnesota to Alabama. It died just outside of Chicago. It was a sad day....

i think energy has some fish in his system that are really old. he has had them for years.
but if you think about it.... on the reef a fish has a good life if he is not eaten in the first 3 years. he would be an old fish on the reef.

sorry to hear you lost your clown dirk.
