Guppy fry tank

I have around 30 guppy fry now but cleaning the tank is a pain trying not to suck and of the little guys up are there and fish or invertebrates that would be ok in a fry tank that will clean it up?

No tank inhabitant can replace water changes. However, what I do in tanks w/super tiny babies is I just dip a cup in the tank and remove water that way. The substrate does not get cleaned, yes, however if a good maintenance schedule is kept up, this should not cause any ammonia spikes. I do recommend, though, to start gravel vacuuming once possible, this is just a temporary solution.
