Saving a guppie!

I currently have a 10 gallon tank with 2 african cichlids (Yellow lab baby, dogtooth baby), a figure 8 puffer and a algea eater ([sp]placastomus). There are also about 10 in the tank right now for them to eat when they feel like it. But I want to save a male guppie that has nice color for a baby and raise him seperatly. Is there any at home creation I can craft to place him into and keep him alive until he is an adult?

Thanks,

A five gallons tank with plenty of plants and run by sponge filter should suffice for the guppy.

but it must be another tank? I can't keep him in a giant planted cup with gravel? and do a 20% water replacement every day.

I'd say no. How would you heat and filter a giant cup?

Also, 5g is the minimum size I'd recommend for him so he has space to swim.
