How fast will OB fry outgrow 10g tank?

My OB female has been holding for a week now and I know I still have about 2 weeks before they will be free swimming but I'm trying to plan out how to setup my tanks for when they are born. The female is currently isolated in a 10g tank and I have two 29g up and running. I am going to use the 10g for the fry for when they are small but I'm wondering how long I will have before they will need to be moved to one of the 29g tanks. I currently have some various females an some juveniles in the 29's that I am growing out before putting in my all male show tank. I will move the fry when ready but I will have to move some fish around so I'm just trying to get a feel for the timeframe any advice would be appreciated.

I usually keep my peacock fry in my ten gal till they get to 1.5 inches which is usually 3.5 to 4.5 months.
