Growth rate depends on food intake, the species, and to some extent water conditions. Basically, I just wait until mine look too large to fit into the other fish's mouths. Then, I transfer one of the fry into the community tank. IF no one chases him/her around hungrily, I figure they don't view the fry as snack-sized, and I then transfer the others!
For livebearers (guppies) it takes about a 4-6 weeks or so, depending on what fish other you have in your tank(s). Egg-layers, I assume would take longer since they start out smaller!
