Today is National Pet Day, and although we all love our cats and dogs, one pet that does not get equal time is the goldfish. Goldfish have a reputation as short-lived creatures, but given proper care, they can live as long as 30 years in captivity. The oldest captive goldfish ever recorded was won at a fair in 1956 and died in 1999 at age 43.
