I used to breed endlers and gupps and I did them all barebottom so you can clean debris easier. I would split the 10 gallon into 3 gallons-ish using 2 dividers and make sure you leave enough air space so the guppies can't jump over. Each divider should have their own airstone of course through splitters to ensure plenty of oxygen.
Now you have six 3-ish gallons and a 5 gallon that you split into males and females. I would leave the babies after they are born for a few weeks until you could cull and then put them in their respective gender-based section in the 5 gallon tank. Allow the trio to reproduce again until you want to try a new trio or when your young ones are old enough to reproduce.
As you watch the fry grow, take out any sluggish, slow, deformed, poor colored fry, and toss, giveaway, or give to said dragon betta (need a small bowl for this).
The key is to cull a lot, cull often, and do not feel bad and save fry just to see if they develop good colors later on. Your lack of tanks will be your limiter.
Also buy and use lots of plants to save babies. I used to use guppy grass because they are easy. When I needed to net the fry I would just grab all the plants and put them in a bowl until I was done netting and then plopped them back into the tank.
Well the snail trap is not working. Maybe wrong bait. I did not have cucumber or cabbage at home so I put some banana instead but they all climb to the wall of the tank. Maybe they know it is a trap. Will try one more night and observe. This time with cucumber which is recommended. ~ CHUNTC
