Yep, or build a pond and let them grow out, place a few bullfrogs in, then you'll have a pond with bullfrogs and tons of guppies!

Sell or rehome, I guess you can feed them to others but seeing that you have raised them to this far I wouldn't think that you would want to.

If I can't find anywhere else to sell them, I just give them away to anyone who has a good home for them.

Ha, I recently picked up a baby diamondback water snake at a reptile show to eat excess endler's livebearers. I have 3 tanks, 75 and 2 40's, crowded with them. Even scooping out netfuls and dropping into other tanks for larger fish to eat doesn't slow them down enough, but feeding the largest females should slow down their population growth a bit.
Molly fry were worse IME, my other/larger fish wouldn't even eat those.
