6-12 months
6 months if fed well and kept in warm clean conditions.
12 months if they aren't fed well.

ok. How old are they generally when they are sold in the store?
no idea, depends on how well fed they were when young.

-------------------
To "feed well" should i feed multiple times a day?
Feeding well means feeding the fish 3-5 times a day with a variety of dry, frozen and live food, and feeding them enough so they are fat and look like pregnant guppies.

Do big water changes and gravel clean the substrate every day or two when feeding a lot of food so the tank stays clean.
Make sure any new water is free of chlorine/ chloramine before it's added to the tank.
