I've heard of goldfish living for decades, but just wondering how long you have had goldfish live for. I know that inbreeding is a huge problem amongst most strains, so wondering how long other peopel have kept the fancier strains.

I only keep Ryukins. My Ryukins are about 4.5 years and are becoming sluggish. Having kept Ryukins most of my life, I 've seen this similar patters starting at about 5 years.

My current batch of 4 have a 75 gallon to themselves with adequate filtration and a varied diet. My longest living goldfish was an Oranda which I kept for about 11 years.
