You can use the buy, sell, trade, free, section on this forum. I would take some but one of mine just gave birth to at least 73 fry, lol.

Seperate them into a temporary tank, advertise the fry on sites like Gumtree, facebook etc. If you give them to a petsore they'll be sold as feeder fish.

ffor what....2 cents
You could easily sell them on this forum. A lot of members here will be willing to adopt fish (and even pay shipping) if the owner cannot keep them. Many people love any fish whether it is high quality or not. I am one of them .

Just let nature take its course. Unless you want to get into some serious guppy breeding, cause they breed almost as fast as mice.
I agree, survival of the fittest, eh?

Depending on how large your tank is, you may raise those guppies to a mature size before releasing them back into the tank.
Then, if any more guppies are pregnant, just ignore them, you probably wont notice anything will have changed.
But it is your aquarium, so it is up to you to decide.
