add photos of your oldest Tang fish, enter comments, enter poll for approximate age...
The total years is how long have you had the fish + how old you thought the fish was when you got it.... (approximate age) .....

Can I count my Synodontis. :lol: He is a wildcaught male, picked up in 1981. He is at least 28 years old by my count.

I have an Altolamprologus calvus Black Pectoral/Inkin fin... I've had him for six years now, and he was a wildcaught adult at 5" when I picked him up, so he is probably eight years old.

I also have a Wild caught Neolamprologus buescheri Gombe. Another wildcaught specimen who I picked up in 2001. He is likely about Nine years old. Pictures of him in the buescheri article.

What Syno species?? I've got a 5 yr old S. multipunctatus that I'd love to see 20 years from now! :D

As for cichlids: I had a mass exodus a few years back, so nothing too old. From my best estimation of receiving adult gobies and cyps in 2005, my oldest fish are ~ 4 years. I've lost 2 of the original cyps, no obvious disease, and I've lost my goby females. The widowers are still hanging out, but the goby girls didn't make it beyond 3 years in captivity. I adopted some calvus that are now almost 5 years old, according to their original keeper.
