The lifespan of goldfish is variable. The record is 43 years, but it is uncommon for goldfish to live this long.

Goldfish usually live quite long when kept in large aquaria or outdoor ponds, up to 15 to 20 years is not unheard of.

In smaller or heated aquaria, a lifespan of 5 to 10 years is quite achievable.
