ghost koi #1
roughly how long are Ghost Koi supposed to live for?

I had one in my pond that was about 10 years old. My dad had it in his pond to start with, then i've had it in mine for the last 5 years. I found it dead today, floating at the top. I can't see anything rong with it and it was swimming around fine yesterday.

It just got me wondering if it was it's age?

Well they can live a very long time some for 50 years or more.
