    Poll: What is the longest time frame you have had a single fish live for?

    This will be a two part poll so vote for both options. The first part will be on the longest time frame you have had a single fish live for and then secondly, why you no longer have the fish (or if the fish you have had for the longest time frame is actually still living). If you'd like to discuss it and post up what type of fish you kept the longest, please feel free to do so.

    I've had FW fish over ten years and ended up giving them up because of the size. SW fish over 5 years, then sold them off. Oh and yes I've lost my share also!

    I got my first sw fish in june or july of 2009. I still have them. The clowns were young when I got them. maybe only a couple years old at most. The pajama cardinal however has got to be in his prime. He is huge at a good 3.5" long. So no telling how old he is. I've given away or traded a few fish, but I still have most all that I have gotten. I have lost a few too. Not from the lack of trying to save them.
    Is there an average life expectancy chart on marine fish? Are they like parrots and live for 80 some years?

    This poll is black text on very dark blue background. Practically invisible unless highlighted

    Also the poll title is not readable, as the text has the same colors as the banner it is overlayed on

    Must be something with the settings on your pc. Everything is normal on my end. Which skin are you using?? Are you using the one that says, "--Reef"

    Let me check if I can find it. It would be whatever the default is, as I have never changed it. Its the one mojo adjusted for 'better performance' a few weeks ago

    Hmm...Never tried that one. I just use --Reef which was my default skin. Maybe try that one and see what happens.

    Cool man..I think they may still be working on things so I guess we'll see what happens.

    LOL! I have no idea! I know Chuck (MtnDewMan) had a pair of clowns that were over 20 years old so some species do live for quite some time.

    I had a sixline for a year and half. Went on vacation and left my roommate in charge, bad idea she didn't top off or feed for a week(she said she did, I'm calling BS though, the tank was 1/3 empty). Not a good combo for a 10 gallon nano. The fish made the jump in hopes of finding a better place, it didn't work

    I don't like that background... makes it to 3'd and hard to focus just on the forum. So if you're using newreef skin then the poll is VERY dark.
