How do I know when to transplant seedlings to a bigger pot

I recently purchased a 25 pellet Jiffy greenhouse. It’s 25 small peat pellets and right now 16 have sprouted up seedlings. The tomato seedlings seem to be growing the quickest–how do I know when to place them in a bigger pot? I don’t want to keep the top of the greenhouse on if it’s going to be detrimental for the plants already growing. Help!
