Default How long do Amano Shrimp live?

I ask because i have a really old guy that from a quick web search seems way beyond his lifespan.

I just cleaned out my heavily planted 40 gallon tank and transfered all residents to new ADA 20. To my shock i found a small pleco i hadn't seen in two years and even more shocking a lone surviving amano shrimp. he's very healthy, and huge. he's bigger than my white cloud minnows. havn't seen him stop eating yet.

I just looked up in my microsoft money account and i originally purchased him in november of 2008. actually purchased three of them and have never bought any others from anyone else.

whats the longest anyone has heard of them living for?
