When I was little I owned goldfish a couple of times. I remember being so excited to get them home and watch them swimming all around. Unfortunately my goldfish never lived very long. I think the longest they lived was about a month or two. Have you ever owned any goldfish and if so what was the longest they lived?

I have all kinds of fish. I have 5 big tanks in my house with tons of different kinds of fish in them. I have 3 Koi that get very big. I have 4 angel fish,some sharks,dragon eel,silver dollars, and jelly bean parrot fish. when you have fish you need to get a testing kit that cost 30 dollars to test you fishes water. check it at least once a week. Go to you pet store and get the stuff for there water to help them.

I have goldfish, actually I had six. I now have three, of which one that I had for almost two years. I am surprised that it is still living, but it is. The other two that are still living, I probably have had about a year and a half. They are hanging in there, I know a lot of goldfish do not live for long, but I guess I have super fish

Maybe it's the fish food you're feeding them.

actually i don't have goldfish ,but my friend once had three goldfishes.unfortunately those goldfishes only lived for a week,because my friend had never kept pet before she had them.the most important reason results the goldfishies die was she fed too much to them.

I never owned any type of fish, but my grandfather had an outside goldfish pool (not a pond) with carp (at lease I think they were carp) in it. I don't know how long they lived. I don't remember ever seeing my grandfather feed them.

I've had goldfish. I purchased one to season my aquarium once and I couldn't get him to die. It swam around the fish tank for three years until I found someone who wanted him. I wanted only tropical fish. Goldfish produce to much acid for them and tend to kill your other fish. On a better note they are pretty. Just know they need their own tank.
