Guppy fry - big enough to join the big fish?
 
My guppy fry are about 2.5 cm long in a breeder net. The fish in the tank are 2 guppies, 2 platties and a small albino pleco. Fish are no bigger than 3 inches. Think it's about time the fry to join them?

You could try putting one or two in and see what happens. They are at the point where it's really too close to call either way.

I put one in. The female guppy followed the fry around for a few minutes. She was looking pretty confused. I could see it on her face, "Where did you come from?" The platys barely glance at her (the fry). Everything seems well, and I put the remaining 2 fry in.
It's been about 20 minutes and I can only see one fry swimming about. I'm assuming the other to are hiding in the java moss in the corner somewhere.
