How long do plecs live for

Was watching my plecs earlier and realised that I've had some of them for quite a long time now
How long do they live for approximately?
My vampire plec for example that I bought as a tiny little guy just before plecoplanet started which makes him approximately 9 years old is now fully grown
He's quite tame now comes out as soon as I put food out

I know panaques live to a good age what about some of the other species?

Not sure how long plecs live..... but I know they can live a very long time! My oldest plec is at least 14 years old!

Take care,
Chuck
