Exclamation Baby guppies overload

Some friends of mine have recently started several aquariums
In their home. (4) one of them had mainly guppies.( one female betta)
They had what they thought was a very fat female and unexpectedly had babies. Some died So there are around 12 now but they got a new aquarium for
The male guppies in the tank and it wasn't ready when the new male guppy was
So the had to put him with the rest and they think their
Female is pregnant again!!!! They have nowhere to put the 12(+)
Babies!!!! Does anyone have any ideas on where to put them?!

I'm assuming she either plans to get more females or keep the genders separate after this(one female with a bunch of males long term is bad for her, she'll get stressed).

The fry will be eaten if left with the adults, the faster ones may find hiding spots and live until they're big enough to not be eaten.

If they want to keep most of them alive, a 2-5 gallon tank/storage container will be fine to keep them in for 2 weeks or so(until they're too big to be eaten).

females can drop fry every 28 or so days, and can store sperm for months after being separated from males.
