Thread: How long do they live?

    Default How long do they live?

    Yeah that's my question, nothing more complicated than that really...

    I guess they live longer if they're healthy, so I am wondering if you have happy, healthy fish and they don't get killed, hiw long do they usually live?

    Well I read an article on here says they can live 10 years.

    They can. If very well kept in suitable conditions and have good genes to start with. We're talking about Malawi mbuna here. Can be more or less for other types of fish.
