Thx for the help though!

Not sure exactly how long but i think they live 10yrs+. Unfortanually LFS's the world over seem to sell these guys without telling people how big they can actually get, 1-2ft. A crappy LFS in my town gets a delivery of them every week and I have heard them lie to customers about how big they get. I would try and get him a new home ASAP
