Interestig how there is no answer to this question anywhere. When I was searching around for one, I came across the question in the form of a Reef Central thread and guess what? As big as RC is, no one answered that guy's thread either.
So perhaps nobody has ever owned one from baby to adult, that they thought died of 'old age'.
March 2007: Added 45-gallon reef w/T5's. U-tube overflow.
April 2007: Separate 33-gallon frag system with 20-gallon sump/refugium, hob skimmer.
May 2007: Hated the U-tube and the 12x36 shape of the 45; moved everything into a 58-gallon 18x36 reef-ready tank. GSA skimmer. Kalk reactor. Media reactor.
10 Dec 2007: Put rocks and first corals in a new 240-gallon tank. Custom 3'x5', Calfo overflow. 10 60" 80W T5 lights, GSA skimmer, kalk stirrer. Added GSA CA reactor April 2008. Added media reactor. Added refugium. Added Remote Deep Sand Bed.
May 2009: Added 40-gallon frag tank to the 33-gallon frag system. More T5's.
July 2009: Swapped out the 58-gallon tank for a 50-gallon 'stock tank'.
October 2009: 240G is WAMAS TOTM.

I recently lost one of my first seahorses to as far as I can tell old age, Theoria was just short of 4 years old and didn't show any signs of illness other than slowing down a bit before she passed so it's gotten me thinking about how long some of my original inhabitants will live. My first three non invert inhabitants were Theoria (female seahorse), Stevie (male seahorse), and Vince (Firefish). Stevie is still doing well but he seems to be getting a bit snile in his later years as he still knows the clear plastic tube means food but has gotten that it comes out of the bottom of the tube not the side or top.

The only thing I don't like about thread revivals is that I end up having to do updated research....

blue gudgeon (another type of dartfish) says 8 to 12 here! I had no idea they have such a long lifespan - maybe I will re-visit the notion of getting some. http://www.theaquari...ris_heteroptera
Seems like stuff keeps taking me to pages about gobies. Firefish are not gobies, people!
