how big is big enough?

i have many guppy fry that are growing up in a breeding box but i would like to move thm to the 5 gallon with the older guppies. there is one full grown female and 5 3 month old guppies as well as 2 otto cats and a few ghost shrimp. how big do the fry need to be so they are not eaten?

i have guppy fry that are only about a month old that somehow escaped from the breeder while i was away, but they weren't eaten during the week i was away, so i figured they'd be fine outside. and they are!
