All my tanks are bare bottom so it's easy to maintain. I breed several guppy strains and they are all bare bottom tanks with box and sponge filter. This is my standard breeding setup.

How do you find your parameters? do they change easily with no substrate for bacteria to grow on?

I used to check my water parameters for ammonia spike and irregularity in my water. But now I only check my parameters if I see something wrong. My parameters are almost normal I have a weekly WC. I do a lot of culling on my guppies on my guppies that I don't like. I don't cycle my tanks I just have 2x55 gallon aged barrel treated with Seachem Prime for WC and they thrive. I can setup a tank with 3 day old aged water and never had issues. Been doing it for a while now I have 40 tanks running.

Should try seeing if you can supply a LFS instead of culling them.

Does your culling = killing or giving away
