I would suggest maybe an African Dwarf Frog, they wont bother juveniles or adults, but would happily eat the fry. Also, a large molly or two would eat the fry. Or if you have the seperate tank, or already have one...maybe a dwarf puffer, they would eat the fry...but I would put the fry in the puffers tank not the puffer in with all the guppies.
Guppies might eat the fry when they are super small, so small we might not see them all yet. But my tank is all male guppies (11 of them), yet I have 6 guppy fry in a breeder net I had given to me. I woke up a few mornings ago to one of my male guppies, his name is Turk, inside the breeder net...he had to have jumped in, even if he did poor thing probably hit his head as the water level was high and he needed to clear about an inch in distance and another inch in height to make it into it. Anyways, he had probably been in overnight, but he didnt bother any of the 6 fry, he actually seemed really freaked out that these 6 little things were what seems to be playing ring-around-the-rosie with his head. I had to laugh, then figure out how to get him out. lol. Once the fry are sexable, the males will join the 29 gallon, and the females will go into a new 15 gal with the neons from the 29 gal, all the fish from the 5 gal (except the otos, they will go to the 29 gal as the new tank wont have algae), and I will probably add some cories to it later on.
