Fry size suitable to sell/ ship?

I have some albino corydoras aeneus fry. Very few are 1/2 in, most of them are between 3/4 and 1 in.
What size should they be before selling/rehoming?

I think 1/2 inch is suitable provided that they are properly shipped with consideration of the weather and shipping time. All these factors are important to ensure safe and live arrival.

I personally think yours are the perfect size now, IMO a 1/2" fish has so little "meat on its bones" as it were that the stress and going without eating during a few days of shipping could seriously emaciate it. Fish closer to 1" tend to fare a little better.
