What age are fry considered adults?

What age are fry considered juveniles or adults? My fry started breeding at 6-7 wks and are due in December... My little 8 wk old male is mating with the other two fry I picked out and one of the adults... She slows down and he tries his best, but he's so small.

I consider them juveniles when they start to color up and adults when they are near full grown.

Sexually mature and adults are two different things. I'd agree with jetajockey that I call them adults when they're nearing their max size.
