I raise guppies for my Bettas, guppy fry that are healthy and gut loaded are a wonderful live food and it also provides exercise and helps to fight boredom by stimulating their hunting instinct.

I use my female guppy tank to put my male in after spawning for free range feeding on fry and I use it for my female Bettas too for conditioning along with other live food.

However, if you don't like feeding live foods(fry) to your Bettas and that okay in my book, I know some people can't do that, you can try trading your extra fry to the LFS for store credit, but be aware if they are not special they may be used as feeders.

i breed guppies and am attempting to breed platies. You could give me the fry! Ha ha just joking although i do love them they are so cute! Well besides giving to the lfs you could find some friends or family that would want them,and like oldfishlady said you could feed them to your bettas as a treat (thats how i cull sickly fry) other than that you could place them on aquabid once they grow up.

Well i would wait until they get their colors and are big enough before you sell them. I normally price mine according to how colorful they are and how nice the finnage is. Ex. gray/black female with average finnage = 2$ Pale (not white but no pigment on body. Not albino) female= 5$ Male with red/yellow/purple/hint of black/green.( i have one but i am not selling him) and big finnage= 8$
You get the idea but thats how i do it.
