There are tons of semi-aggressive fish to choose from, even at petsmart. They also come in all sizes, so it is really on your preference. A number of things come into play, like do you know what your tap water's pH is? That is the most useful before anyone can really give you ideas of fish species.
Semi-aggressive fish start as common as a betta, which a 5 gallon tank set up would work for be the betta the only fish in the tank with maybe a shrimp, snail, or what not on an invert. And semi-aggressive fish go way up in size to fish that require 100+ gallons at full grown. So, what size tank do you have the room for and how much tank can you afford? How many tanks do you have now? Even a 29 gallon tank would give you many stocking options for semi-aggressive as most tetras are semi-aggressive, and also require groups of 6+.
As far as decor, a substrate of course is needed. Be it gravel depends on the fish you plan on stocking as well as your personal preference whether you go with sand, gravel, rocks, glass pebbles, or whatever else that is suitable for aquaria use. Plants also go with your personal choice as well as what species you are keeping. Also, whether or not you want to do artificial or live plants.
There are many choices available, and I can understand why you would be looking for assistance in this, however, it is up to you on what you want and can house successfully before anyone can really make any suggestions for you. Good Luck, and I will help as much as I can on this thread.
And sorry, I have no guppy questions, I usually dole out answers on them verses questions.
