Default How long does it take for fry to mature?

I have two sets of fry in my 20 Gal.

My question is how long does it take for them to grow an inch or so?

A month or a few months?

Just so I know what to expect.

Btw I'm picking up some filter sponge tonight I also let the pregnant molly go back to the 45 gal. I just couldn't keep her in there. If she drops, she drops. There'll be another time. Hopefully we catch it in time!

an inch for a platy is an adult. it could take them about 3 months to 4 months.....but if you're lookin at moving them back to the main 45Gl tank, you could once they are bigger than the mouth of the biggest fish you have.

I agree with Zakk. I have many fry of various ages and I just wait until they are too big to fit in the biggest fishes mouth before putting them in the big tank. It works out great. I have never had one eaten yet. I hate waiting too but this way they survive and don't become someones snack.
