keep guppies from breeding?

I am in the process of setting up a 40 breeder and am planning to breed guppies. However, I don't want to separate them. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Look for plants!! Things for fry to hide in! Top water plants with long roots look cool

Keep in mind that a female guppy can store sperm for at least 6 months, meaning you do not have to have a male for her to get pregnant, then comes the problem of what to do with so many guppies.

You could add a fish to eat the fry.
