How old are your goldfish?


Recommended Posts

Ours are too old!! We've had one for six years (the last of a group of five that were acquired at the same time), and two others that are two years old.

No one pays much attention to them, and it's a pain to clean their tank (full disclosure: DH does it, because I find it disgusting), so I really won't be sad when they have finished their time among us. The internet says they can live into their teens or even twenties. I'm hoping not.

If you really don't want them anymore, you could let other families at your dc's schools or in a local homeschooling group know you have fish in need of a new home.  We found a new home for our last aquatic frog that way.  He lived several more years there with some happy kiddos.  Your local pet store might also be willing to take them.
