Male betta and female Endler?

I have a male guppy and a male endler in a 56g tank. A female Endler just had a fry this morning in a 10g tank. I have another 10g tank just for a male Betta. The female Endler isn't eating food or her fry at the moment. Here are a few plans, wondering if #3 would work:

Plan 1: I could put her in the 56g and put the male guppy in with the fry, but I don't want to crossbreed when the Endler fry gets older.

Plan 2: Since my 56g tank is underutilized, I had been planning on having the 56g tank hold ALL of the Endlers when the fry can't be eaten by the 3 upside-down catfish in there, but it would be tough to retrieve the baby endlers in that tank when I give them away in a month; with this plan the guppy would take over the would-be empty 10g tank.

Plan 3: Another plan I'm wondering about is to put her in with the male Betta for a few weeks while fry grows a bit and the 56g tank doesn't change at all. Then in a few weeks the female endler would go back in the 10g tank with the fry.

Bettas and Endlers go really well together.

You will find endlers are too fast for your Betta to catch.

Why don't you just put the female back in the 56 with the other endler and the betta? The fry don't need a parent for any reason, and then you would only need 2 tanks.
