In great Britain April 10, died on goldfish George, who was 44 years old. About it reports The Mirror.
The owner George Keith Ellis won it in a pair with other fish Fred at a local fair in 1974 and gave them to his friend Mary, who is now married. Fish caught two of the move and the birth of their daughter owners.
Fred died in 2017 at the age of 42 years. After his death, George started to lose its Golden color, eventually changing it to a silver, claimed by the owners. George was buried in the garden of the house next to Fred.
According to Mary, at first they did not believe that fish can live more than one year, but in recent years they did not doubt that Pets will outlive them. Keith with his wife believe that the secret to a long life of their fish — “regular exercise, diet flakes for the fish and regular water changes”.
In 2015 George and Fred was recognized as the oldest goldfish in Britain, two years they lost the fish Splash. The average length of this species is about 10 years.
