depends on many things...How do you plan to catch them? is the water different between the grow out tank and the breeder tank? is the grow out tank cycled?

in short they should be ok as long as you catch them carefully and the water is not too different. Always aclimatise then even if you think the water is the same otherwise you will get the fry spirals Sad

Water in both tanks will be the same and yes the grow on tank is fully cycled.

I was planning to use a standard 4in fish net
