growing babies!

My first spawn babies are growing finally! They are 3 1/2 weeks old and seem to be several different colors. My male is a bright red HM and my female was a darker hm, but some of the babies seem pretty light.
Anyway, I was planning on breeding another pair as I have a large grow out tank and only about 10-15 babies from my first spawn, my question is how old (or young) can you move the babies? I would like to breed another pair and move the babies as soon as possible into my other tank with babies. There is lots of food there and it would be easier to care for them all in the same tank. Anyone have any experience with moving them?

Wish I could get some decent pics, they are so cute but I can't get good pics through the tank I have them in. Maybe when they get a little older.

Thanks,
Karen

I usually move them when they're at least 3-5mm. That's usually about 10-14 days. Sometimes it's much longer - I go by size, not by days.
