How Long For Poecilia Velifera To Grow Up?

My LFS really wants these fish, but I want to see if they are reasonable to breed. How long does it take for these giant mollies to grow to a decent size?

Greg Sage is an expert with these and similar fish (and others as well).
Poecilia velifera article

If you read through the care he uses for the fish he keeps you will see a really good picture of care and using water keeping to gain the highest quality fish possible.

Excellent person and has very high quality fish. I have seen the fish room he keeps and it is large and well kept!

These are really amazing looking fish! In his tour he emphasized they were slow to grow.
Favorite tank right now - 12G Edge nano fish

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
