I think is was age. That's pretty nice of you for caring for them that long. I used to have a goldfish tank, but the fish all died because of filter failure while I stayed the night at a friends house.

10 years is old, but goldfish are said to live for up to 25 years.


Fish are not going to die in one night because of a filter failure. If that were the case, I would have lost all my fish after hurricane sandy, as I had no power for 4 days. Almost all of my fish survived, with no filter, no aeration, no plants, no nothing.

Their are some filters that don't work as good as others you know that right? I got my filter used and was in good condition, not the best, but good enough. Was planning to buy a new one as I haven't seen this type of filter before a few days later but it happened. Either way its in the past so we both shouldn't make a big deal about it right?

Non functioning filters all work the same...

It would just be a shame for anyone to be worried that their fish will die overnight without filtration.

This was quite a story - the goldfish survived more than 4 months without a filter after an earthquake.

True story. We had a small pond outside our previous house a long time a go. Any way. We had about five goldfish in it. The pond was in front of the house. One day we started to notice they were dissapearing. So we watched and tried to figure out what's happening to them. Then we saw one of our neighbours dogs outside and we went to look what he was doing. The dog was eating our goldfish but. But at that moment we saw him take one we caught the dog pried open his mouth and took the goldfish unharmed out of his mouth. It was a little stressed of course. So we took the remaining three that was left and put it in a tank two of the three died but the one that was in the dogs mouth survived. It died the other day it lived for ten years.
