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,

~Kyle

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

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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.
