my uncle had one of these bad boys many years ago. he was a member of some aquarium club don't remember what it was called. Wish I had some pics to share. The one he had lived to be about 9 years old but was so finicky and even the slightest change in water params made him sick. very aggressive too, he had to be in his own tank.

From everything that I've read their life span is about 8-10 years but who knows could live longer than that. I mean look at the 40-something year old Pacu. :)
