If you want to save the fry then you will need a breeder trap-I don't use them-or another tank. Here is a trick that I use, take a pasta colander and place it so it rests on the side of a 10G. Depending on the size of the colander you may have to rig it up so that there is 2" of water in the middle. Place your female (s) in the colander and feed very sparingly. When fry are born they drop out and the parents can not get at them to eat them. Once finished, place the adults back in their tank and raise the fry. I feed live brine shrimp and micro worms. You sound like a new person so fine grounfd flake food works in a pinch. Just to make sure you know, the guppys will eat their fry and likely faster than the Betta.
