Maybe I could keep the feeders in the 10 gallon and the fancies in the 25 gallon with my girls.
Or the other way around. Right now, the 2 feeder guppies I have are in my 25 gallon with the girls and the female is pregnant.
What do you think?

Snakeheads get way too big for a 10 gallon tank, which I believe is what the OP wanted to house it in.

Many species of snakehead are now illegal in the US due to escapes becoming established in certain waterways.

I've looked into snakeheads and they are, indeed, large, illegal, and something I wouldn't want to keep.

I'll just keep the guppies and perhaps sell some of them if the tanks begin to overflow with them.

Separating the sexes is quick and easy, and will save you (and the fish) many problems. You have the choice not to bring beings into this world that you cannot care for. Choose compassion.

I have feeder guppies that I bought from my little sister and I need a fish to eat what I cull.

Thanks for the help!

I can care for them, we have a large 75 gallon readily available to keep extras, though my mom doesn't like them in there because the Oscar can't find and eat them.
But, I've decided to get large 10 gallon grow out tubs for the fry and keep the females in one of the breeders tubs in one of those breeders nets until the fry I have are grown and sold to the pet store or to local fish owners.

If you would please see my thread http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=94529 I will be posting links to the diagrams I made to show how I will set up said tubs.

Thank you all for the help, I've decided to keep the guppies and get fancy guppies too!
