How hardy are Molly Fry

Currently I have a tank set up with some fry in it and adults. The ammonia has spiked drastically and I am looking to put the fry and adults in abother tank until cycling is complete. The tank in question is 8 weeks old. The fry are 1 month and some new fry. Would you advise moving them then putting back when cycle completes? Also how long should I keep them in a breeder net, until what size?
Thanks

10 Gallon Tank - Starting Small! Planning to upgrade when I move out of my apartment!
1 - Black Lyretail Molly (F)
1 - Dalmatian Lyretail Mollly (M)
1 - Gold Dust Molly (F)

Moving fry will be ongoing process in ten gallon tank where adult's can re-produce every four weeks.
Would perform water changes perhap's daily of 50 percent until ammonia has settled to zero.
Fry should be large enough at four week's to not be viewed as food by adult's.(can release them)
You might consider larger tank, ten gallon's is quite small for mollies.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
