226. In 1966, two of her scales were removed
and extensively studied to determine her age.
She was the longest living koi fish
7 July 1977.)

    • Yup! This is true! They aged it similar to how the age of a tree is calculated by counting the rings in its bark (or stem). The age of a fish is calculated by counting the number of rings (called annuli) in the scales.

    • Koi fish generally live up to 40 years. Long story short this one lived so long due to environmental factors. I believe they were high in the mountains and cold temperatures thus factors like lower metabolisms. The other 5 koi fish were also tested and all were over 100 years old.

    • It’s funny that someone noticed. They were like, “Man, I’ve worked here for 30 years, and this fish—THIS fish—has been here the whole time. Wonder how old he is?”

    • For people who don't know how the scales thing works, the scales are just as old as the fish, so once you figure out how old the scales are, thats how old the fish is like so others can see

    • Most people are unaware of the fact that many aquarium fish live 10+ years, they just never get there because you treat them wrong. Goldfish: ~15 years, Cichlids: ~15 years, Loaches: 20+ years depending on species, Koi: ~30 years.
