One way is for you to keep the fry into small container and let them grow up in 2-4 weeks before pouring into this bigger tank.

It is okay to experience and learn. The guppies should drop once every 3 weeks if they are active and fertile. Sponge Filter is easy to maintain too. Just need to squeeze out the dirt (for me once every two weeks) in the water you intended to drain off from the original tank. Happy guppying!
