Apparently koi and goldfish will eat their eggs, but not the fry once they've hatched. As soon as they recognize them as being fish, they won't eat them.
I did hold back feeding after they spawned so they would feast on the eggs instead.
I know what you mean about guppies, they don't call them millions fish for nothing.
