      Wonder how long the goldfish lived... Ours needed 10 gallons each of water, a filter, and chemicals!

      I've heard that they either live a couple years, or quite a long time, being related to carp, who can live to be 200 years old. Any fish experts out there? Those fish are very crammed in.

      Thank you.. I wonder too ;)
      ... let's hoping they lived until at least 1893...
