    wringo, fish and corals can be kept for years, If your system is up to scratch and you keep a strict maintenance schedule.

    However there are some fish that are not suitable for captivity, and should be avoided
    at all costs.

    Take for eg. George (Tunze). He has a Gem that is around 18 years old.

    Agree 100%.

    All depends on the type of fish as well, for example, I believe the convict blenny/engineer goby only lives for up to 3 years.
