No, short answer. The reason some of us use leaves is to provide something common in the fish's habitat, or slightly soften/acidify the water, or for spawning sites. None of this applies to guppies who come from basic (pH above 7) harder water streams, and do not spawn (lay eggs) on leaves, being livebearers.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
