the better life??

Two clown fish on a coral reef somewhere on the Pacific coast decided to do something different. Both set off in different directions from the reef. One of them was immediately captured by a fisherman - who gifted it to his kid. This clown fish lived to be 9 human years old in the captivity of a fish bowl - always being fed and always in company of the other few fish in the bowl.

The other clown fish, mean while, swam across the open ocean, and saw a million new things in the ocean - something it would never had seen if it had stayed at the reef. It saw the wonders of the ocean, while always running from predators and searching for food sources, and finally died on the same day as the other clown fish and became dinner to a stingray.

which of the two had a better life?
