What to do?

I have a VERY square female guppy but the accommodations of the breeder trap already have fry in them
What should I do? Normally I'd put her in the trap for an hour or so but I can't and there are some very voracious eaters in the tank
The only hiding spots are some driftwood and plants

Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?

Feed the tank a small amount every hour or 2 to keep their appetites at bay. Add some floating structure to give the newborns a place to hide. Since I've been maintaining a level of live foods in my guppy tanks they don't eat many fry, if any at all, so I think the key is to keep them as full as possible. You obviously don't want to go overboard with this and nuke your water quality.
