Platy info

I was wondering on possibly getting some platys in the future. And I was wondering if y'all could tell me anything about them like how big they get, how many yeas they live, and etc.....

Thanks guys and gals.

They get about 2.5 inches, live maybe 2-5 years, prefer 7-7.5 ph (I think) and 70-80 temperature. They swim all over the tank, and require at least 20 gallons.
