Betta and guppy/endler fry

Well, you see, my Endler/Guppy fry[may be both] are now growing larger. I have 3 males now. While doing the usual water changes for all my fish, I put in my ghost shrimp into my sorority. 14 ghost shrimp. The betta's did not like them, so, I'm about to remove them from the tank.

My question is;
Can guppy/endler fry live with 6 female betta's properly? Will I wake up to find dead fry? Or, will I wake up to the fry and the betta's being tolerante of eachother?
These are a few of the fry. There are 21-24 in total. I don't know the exact number

What do you think?

They run the risk of being eaten by the girls. I wouldn't risk it. I'm fairly sure some of my female Endlers have given birth, but between my killis and my bettas none of the fry survive.

Mmm. Thanks, then. I guess I'll keep them in their holding tank until they are big enough to be moved into a 1 gallon container.
