When is the right time?? platty fry..

My female platy had fry that tomorrow will be three weeks old. I have them in a seperate tank right now, but i dont know when to put them back in with the adults. right now in the tank i have 3 female mollies, 3 female platties, 1 male molly, and 1 male platty. they are in a 29 gallon tank just the eight of them. my momma say that we will put them in a breeder net in the big tank. is that the right thing to do?? HELP!!

when they are bigger then twice the size of your biggest fish's mouth, they are ready to be in with the adults.
