Don't put in a substrate, it will stay cleaner. Do you have a place to put fry? You'll be overrun. Only put in one trio of high quality guppies to start. To save more fry, get some small holed plastic mesh and put it across the tank so it is divided. You don't need a half and half, just 1/4 of the tank will do. Stuff that entire area with plants and put lots of plants in the adult side too. Fry will swim through the mesh and be safe. Feed them frozen foods and the colors will pop.

Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?
