I don't know the answer to your question. But, if I were trying to find the answer I would look at other fish that have been wild caught vs tank raised that have been around a long time to give you a reference point of lifespan of tank raised vs wild caught.
In theory tank raised may do better do to their hopefully less parasite load.

I say tank raised as to me this means raised in a tank. Sorry to put it bluntly but that is clear to me.
I believe they came from the wild and were not captive bred.
I have seen captive bred fish and they were not pretty to me. They appeared misshapen and the stripe patterns were not consistent.
I know of nobody with Clown Loaches of 50 years old.
From my research I find that they very rarely reach into their 20s.
I am in touch with a couple of people who claim to have Clown Loaches older than mine. There are not many around.
How many owners are you in touch with that have Clown Loaches of this age and do you have their contact details so I can converse with them please?
