Time it takes for platties, mollies, and neon tetras to grow to full size?
 
My question is basically in the topic.

For example, if I were to purchase these fish at a pet store, how many months would need to pass before I got the idea of the "full size" of my fish?

Depends on how big they are when purchased.
At a year old,,they will be bout as large as they're gonna get.
Sexually mature much sooner.
Do note that neon's and live bearer's don't share similar water chemisrty need's.
Neon's prefer soft acidic water, while the livebearer's need hard alkaline water.
