Change the habitat to make breeding less successful
Introduce a predator of fry and eggs.
Catch them and kill them humanely.

These fish are only up to an inch long, so the cat route is out. At the moment I take them back to my local suppliers, who seem happy to accept them

Depends on species, but store credit is your best bet, even if it's only enough for the odd pack of frozen food or whatever. There's a website called Aquarist Classifieds, could try on there if you set the price somewhere reasonable, but if you're not bothered about what you get then stick with taking them back to a shop, less messing around.
