life span of fathead/sunburst Anthias?

Lost my Sunburst today after 16 months
Don't know the reason except I have been trying to maintain the tank much more lately, probably stressed him out too much.

I was wondering how long have you guys had yours live?
Can we not expect them to live very long?

I don't know what their lifespan is exactly, but I'm sure its well longer than that. I can't imagine any anthia's having a normal lifespan of less than 5 years.

Currently tank-less :(
