Place it in the tank when you know its bigger enough not to fit in your other fishes mouths

Hello naomi...

Since you have the fry separated already, it would be best not to put it in with the others until it's larger than the largest fish's mouth. In the mean time, start feeding all the fish a little more and a little more often. It's been my experience with livebearing fish that well fed adults are unlikely to bother the fry.

All great advice, also when you decide to add them, try after an evening feeding when the lights go out, that way it is calm and they won't be noticed. Then make sure to feed a little early in the morning, something yummy, so they will be very happy.

Make sure to add some floating plants live or fake, though I prefer live.

I would agree with everything said and also for me it was always around 1 to 2 months before reintroduction.
