Welcome. I would just leave them in there and do nothing. Some fry will survive to adulthood and new fry will be eaten as they are being born. Survival of the fittest.

Eventually, I have found that the adults get lazy and stop eating the fry. Your tank might become over populated in a year or so though. I think you will enjoy this experience.

I think he is going to love the guppies. There behavior is just wonderful and you can always count on them to be active. You can try hand feeding them. Grab some larger flakes and put the tip of your fingers in the tank. They will ready eat out of your hands. Just another reward of having them.
