Well, that age is probably not as rare as one might think. In a well maintained aquarium they can certainly live eight to nine years.
These are well past the age of bearing little puppies and one of them has developed a cataract.
But they still wag their tails when they see me!

UPDATE: 8/24/09 - The King of My Aquarium (far left) peacefully slipped away yesterday. Retaining his dignity to the end, he quietly huddled in a corner until overtaken by Death. I suppose you could say... He sleeps with the fishes.

    Great exposure - I've not tried any aquarium shots but with reflections I would expect some difficulties. This looks like we're in the tank.
