Gourami won't eat Guppy fry?

I had an explosion of Guppy Fry in my tank and in order to reduce the numbers, I was hoping that my Gourami would eat some of them, if not all but guess what??? NONE This is the friendliest Gourami from what I understand. From everything I have read, they would eat small fish/fry and they are also supposed to eat snails What is wrong with my Gourami? Why, why won't he eat some of these fry?

Oh yeah, The Guppies are going strong... wayyyyy too strong. I did put the adult males into the large tank. They are doing fine with the Barbs and Platies and Rainbow shark. I left the females in the tank with the Corie's. Unfortunately the girls were already in the family way. At first there was only one baby, which I was happy about and over fed for sometime in hopes of having Junior grow to adulthood. Now there are a few dozen babies so I dropped my girl (the opaline gourami) in the small tank in hopes she would downsize the problem a little. NOPE!!! I guess I just can't manage aggressive animals. I have Rottweiler's which are the sweetest most loving dogs in the world, a Gourami who loves babies of other species. lol Go figure!

LOL I had a rottie that I dog sat for about 6 months and he was always a love bug as long as you did not try to break in. ; ) I always thought he would rather lick someone to death than try to hurt anyone until one night someone tried to break in the window while we were asleep then I saw his other side and let me say I am glad he had that side that night.

LOL can you not give them to the LFS? Or maybe trade them for something you need like fish food?

If you stop feeding the gourami will it eat the fry when it's hungry enough? or maybe it thinks the fry need a little more garlic on them... sorry... i had to say it. :D
