When will fry be big enough to not get eaten?

ArtemisFish

Hi everyone,
My pair of sparklers made babies in an isolation tank before the female hounded the male to death, but I thought they ate them all. I was surprised to see a little one pop out in the tank with the lone female (she'll be returned to big tank soon). It's about 3mm in length now. Is he in danger of being eaten, or should I move the female adult asap? (I have reasons why I need to wait to put her in big tank again). How big do fry need to be before they can join the others?
Thank you! P.S. This all happened before I had time to research how to breed sparkling gourami, so I made a mess of it, I'm afraid.

If i move my fry, i usually wait til they are too big for the adults to easily eat, so basically bigger than the adult mouths.

thanks, I would guess the little one is safe then.
