Is an eight-years old cleaner wrasse a record?

I had quite a few cleaner wrasses that did not survive for more than few years until I have my last one since 2006, which grows to more than 3" long and fat but shows sign of aging on the tail (no longer straight), otherwise in good health.
My question is: does anyone know the longevity record of the fish in captivity?
Thanks.

Re: Is an eight-years old cleaner wrasse a record?

Not sure if its a record but it certainly is a dang good shot at it, cleaner wrasses dont usually last very long in captivity, mainly due to the fact i think that its impossible to meet their dietary needs.

In the wild, each cleaner wrasse eats around 1,200 cirolanid isopods per day This is their food of choice, their staple diet.

First of all where would you get that many cirolanid isopods, and how would you maintain a good supply of them ??

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Yes, photos in gallery, both young and old.
I believe its' the additive I used that promote the growth of inverts that the cleaner constantly feeds on.

I'll at sometime in the future address the long term survival challenges of fish in general, and with water chemistry in specific in the forum to benefit those don't get bored.
Meanwhile I'll stir the pot (no canabis) to cook more riddles with smoke to train everyone's brain. Cheers!!!
