FRED THE GOLDFISH - R.I.P.


Fred the Goldfish
2002 - 2012
Flushed, but not forgotten.
May he rest in peace.

Fred, the oldest living trained goldfish, died (hopefully peacefully) in his bowl on January 18, 2012.


He had a long and prolific career as a fish and posed as a model for painting classes.  He will be missed.

RIP, Fred. Sorry you lost your little fishie buddy, Deb. I think, having kept him alive for 10 years, you can now advance to a gerbel or hamster or maybe a guinea pig? Or would Stay get too jealous? ha ha Take care, stay warm and safe this weekend.

That is a long life for a goldfish. He was a cutie. RIP Fred.

OMG Deb! I had no idea that a goldfish could live for that long, you must be a super caretaker of fish. RIP Fred...Susan
