PS: I do have a spare 5.5 gallon (for the fry??)
You could always see if any of your friends are interested in some guppies, put and ad on the internet, or in a paper, try bringing them to your local fish store and see if they want them. You would have to raise them a little for this though. How many fry are we talking here? You could put a few in the 5.5 gallon tank. And get a fry net to hang over the side of your ten gallon until the fry are large enough to sell/give to someone. Guppy fry grow fast too. But in all, the best way to deal with the fry, is separating your males and females. Or just trying not to notice when one day you wake up and you little guppy isn't looking as plump as she was the night before.
