How long do Bubble Eye goldfish live for?

I have never owned them because I have always been paranoid about them getting hurt. A friend of mine, the one who took my 4 goldfish in, is looking into getting a few since they are on sale at the local pet shop. I always heard they stay small and don't live very long though.

I read that it was 10 to 15 years which is pretty impressive. I was considering getting some of these myself but I too have my concerns. I have read horror stories of them getting cut open from decor items.

Yes, they are usually small in size (up to 5") But they live long. They will have a lifespan of up to 15years if all factors are considered.

How long they live in an aquarium will largely depend on the care and maintenance you offer the fish. That applies to any kind of pet.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I was a bit confused because no one was clear on the lifespan of this particular kind of fish.
