Russian Black Tomatoes

hi I’m new to growing tomatoes from seed. See pictures these are now about 2 inch tall. When should I repot? Thanks for your advice.

    Prick them out now, one each in a 7cm pot of compost.  The onion seedlings can stay a bit longer.  Hold the seed leaf , not the stem. If you bruise the stem , they will rot off and die.

    I usually wait till they develop 2 true leaves before I prick out, but I'm not much of an expert.

    Plant them nice and deep ... you can bury most of the stem ... it’ll grow roots and anchor the plant firmly.

    Yes their first true leaves are appearing ... I’d prick out the ones which have those leaves first. 
    You can leave the less developed ones for a few days until they too have their first true leaves.
