Default Neon Tetra Lifespan & Schooling

I found On a site posted here that claims neons can live up to 10 years: http://www.aquariumlife.net/profiles...tra/100034.asp

On this site it says 1 1/2 - 3 years documented: http://www.aquatic-hobbyist.com/prof...orms/neon.html

On Tim's the profile for Neon Tetra states about 8 years: http://www.tropicalfishandaquariums..../NeonTetra.asp

I'm going to guess they can live a long time based on 2 sites. Anyone with experience here on how long Neons can live? Another question. Has anyone ever kept cardinal and neons together. I would like to know if adding cardinals to my family of 3 Neons will satisfy their schooling needs.

Thanks for the links StormySkies I almost bought some neons the other day for my Amazon tank, then I realized that I have 4 angels so I decided to get black neons instead
