Shiny ate all my guppy babies!

We had a few silver sharks throughout the time we owned a fishtank. They're beautiful to watch and grow quickly and easily, with little to no input from the keeper. Was very tolerant of our other fish; guppies and a bottom-feeder; apart from when our guppies bred.
When we released the baby guppies from the breeding tank, the shark would hunt them down and eat almost every last one! We didn't have the opportunity to buy a larger tank to allow for maximum growth as we unforunately had an outbreak of white spot and lost all our fish. We stopped keeping them as we were planning to move and didn't want to put them through the stress, as this is what caused the illness in our first batch.
