I'd wait a couple more weeks.. They're just too fragile right now.

As long as there isn't anything in the other tank that would eat the fry, I would just move them now. People who breed platies move fry to different grow-out tanks all the time. I have moved plenty of fry from tank to tank without an issue. Just acclimate them a tad slowly.
