How old will my yellow-tail damsel get? He's 6 now

Hi all,

My first fish I ever got is a yellow-tail damsel and he just had his 6th birthday. I was wondering if anyone knew how old they get?

Thanks in advance...

Hard to say, but either Amphiprion percula or A. ocellaris clownfish have been noted up to 30yrs, which are part of the damsel family.

I have a 4 stripe damsel that is almost 11 yrs old. I have several others that are 9 yrs or older.
