Nice looking guppy home. I really like the bright orange and red guppies, they remind me of my crew. You are soooo smart not to have gotten any females. I've given away hundreds of guppies by now. I've tried to give away all the females a couple times but I always either miss one in all the plants or a fry grows up to be female and the guppy explosion continues. They really enjoy a planted tank though and they seem to help keep algae at bay if I don't feed them too much.

I had 3 female bettas in my guppy tank for a while and they did hunt down and consume nearly all of the fry, but they also did some munching on the adult guppies' tails (especially the males) so I moved the betta girls to a different tank. I've never actually caught the fry and transferred them to the betta tank to be a meal. Of course with how heavily planted my tanks are I'd probably end up with a new colony of guppies. :)
