"I am so excited to read this!! My rafael cat is literally nicknamed 'zombiefish'. I acquired him from my ex boyfriend that moved out in 2001. He had it for at least a couple of years before we met, So I can say absolutely that he/she is at least 18 years old. I have to tell you why I call it Zonbiefish. Shortly after my boyfriend left I had purchased a couple of new fish for the tank. It turned out they were tainted and started spreading some kind of sickness thru the tank. I removed them at once and changed as much water as i could, but he was swimming upside down at the top of the tank. Things were not looking good. I was so upset. I went to check on him again and (I swear that I am not lying here) one of his eyes was popped out of his head. I was so upset, but wanted to be sure he was dead before i took any drastic action. The next morning i looked in the tank to check on him and (again i swear i am not lying here) he was absolutely fine. 2 eyes 2 fins...all in the right place swimming around like nothing happened. I have to give him brains now instead of fishfood but... (ok so i may have made that part up) But no, seriously, many years later (like 14 to be close to exact) he is doing fine. He loves flake food. I throw it in for my Congo Tetra and he goes nuts all around the bottom of the tank. And that my friends, is the story of Zombiefish. So cool to know that other people have a fish that is so old too. Also he's not that big. I would be generous in saying he is 4inches. Thanks for letting me share!!!"
