I have a 20 gallon tank with nothing in it but a breeder net with a few fry, and I was wondering at what time I should put the fry in the 20, I'm thinking I will put they 20 or so yellow lab fry in the 20 since they have been in the net for 4 weeks and they are about half an inch big, but the 40-50 yellow tail acei fry are a week younger and they are a little smaller, but they are smaller fry. Should I put both fry in the tank right now? Or should I just move the yellow labs?

If the acei are only a week younger, they should be fine. I have put fry further apart in age than that without ever having any issues. And the acei will probably catch up quicker anyway considering they grow to a larger size.

Labs and Acei are both in the net? Acei 3 and labs 4 weeks?
They should both be fine in the tank by now, fry start chasing food on their own after 1-2 days in my experience, just make sure to feed 2-3 times a day. I have a few otocinclus to clean up extra that they miss as I tend to overfeed a bit.
