How long do snails live?

I'm getting some snails for my 5 gallon dwarf seahorse tank and I was just curious how long they live. I'm getting like 5 dwarf cerith , 2 nassurius, and a couple more.

any living creature can live a long time, given the right life.

keep the water clean, do regular waterchanges and tests. feed them the proper food and they will make you happy for years to come.
