Do my guppy fry look big enough to go in the tank with my adult guppies and tetras?

Yes those look plenty big enough, usually they are good to go once they start getting colors on them.

No, normally guppy fry are safe after the first week or two anyway, the window for them to be eaten is pretty small and tends to happen within the first few days.

The sand looks o.k. to me, I don't normally use filter sand though.

It's not unusual for them to chase a little bit when you first add them, just keep an eye on them.

Filter sand isn't bad, I just don't use it because I like colored sands.

I might be getting a new 10 gallon for the guppies and I'm getting black petco sand and I'm going to get 3 cory cats for the bottom. And I'm just going to have it as a guppy tank. And I'm planning on making it olanted
