I had my oldest for almost 3 years. However, he was full-grown with very developed fins when I bought him, so I'm guessing he was at least 6 months by the time of purchase, which would have put him at a bit over 3 yrs old. The funny thing is that he was the least likely one to live that long in my opinion- he was a bit sickly when I got him and also did some periodic tailbiting. Just goes to show that they can surprise you!

My oldest right now is about a year. The one I had in college lived for 2 years (the stress of moving him during breaks at the dorms probably killed him). I think I remember hearing that they can live to 10 in ideal conditions. Most places seem to think 3-5 years is average.
