Presumably your water is medium hard/hard and basic for the guppies. So there are several of the common tetra that will adapt to such water. Tetra are under "characins" in our profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. Look for those that manage in basic water. Also, check their compatibility comments, as some can tend to nip fins and long-finned guppies would be too irresistible of a target so not a good match. But you will find several others.

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]
