How big do swordtails need to be...?

I need to know how big swordtail fry need to be before I put them in with my swordtails and mollies. Right now, they are 2 months old and about half an inch long.

Got any pics?
Currently raising molly fry myself actually!
They say big enough not to fit in the adults mouth but this fools people as especially mollies mouth can go quite far out
How big a tank is the adults in?
Got any plants?

IMO, i think they are still too small. they will become food to the adult.
