This is because there are many different species of snails in the hobby and noted on the internet.

Some species of snails live very short lives, but some have been recorded to live for over 100 years.

Many of the snails in the aquarium hobby have natural life spans in the wild of 5-40 years. However, they are typically cold or temperate water snails and their lifespan is greatly reduced in reef tank temperatures, they slowly "cook" to death.

If at all possible, try to find warm water snails to purchase and they should live much longer lives in your tanks.

BTW...do you have picures of your snails that reproduced?
