Before adding more fish take into consideration that your guppies will be adding to your current population.

Omega One Shrimp Pellets are what my shrimp/bottom feeders eat. There's also Hikari shrimp cuisine, or you can use large NLS sinking pellets (so the other fish don't eat them.)
You can also use broken up algae wafers.

It's generally not really necessary to feed them though, they subsist off of microscopic food in the tank.
