Baby guppies in a 10 gallon?

Honem

I have a friend who is able to give me some baby guppies. They're about two weeks old. Can I put them all in a 10 gallon for now until they grow old enough to sell? I'm gonna research more on it in the meantime, but I have absolutely no experience with guppies or fry so any help would be appreciated. :)

Depending on how many you have, a ten gallon should be fine...provided you cycle your tank and everything before adding the baby guppies.

10 Gallon for guppy fry will do just fine. Guppy fry are less vulnerable to a non cycled tank. But yes, cycling first won't hurt of course.
The mistake that many people make is thinking that how smaller those fish, the more vulnerable they are. But actually, it's the other way around. The older the fish, the more vulnerable they are in new conditions. When it comes to fry of livebearers, they are much more tolerant in the margin of the water parameters.
