The Tropical Fish Profiles here are extremely helpful for getting the basics of care and behavior for many species. I just read the Guppy profile: Guppy (Poecilia reticulata) Profile
and came across the following:
" Reports cite males living peacefully when there are enough of them in a tank with both open spaces and private spaces."
Assuming that you have two males, and making a slight inference from the profile, my guess is that it's likely their aggression will calm down after you've added more tankmates.
That having been said, this is in no way a recommendation that you add more tankmates immediately
to cull the aggression. I think you're better off continuing to cycle the aquarium with two occasional sparring partners than to throw the bioload back into flux before your tank is stable, thereby risking an even worse fate! Just my opinion, for what it may be worth.
