Would NOT add salt, but Would perorm weekly 50% water change from now on .
Male guppies will chase and nip at each other but with five or six in 10 gal ,with the afore mentioned floating cover,,regular water changes,, the males should be fine assuming water parameter's suit them.
Fin rot, fungus,are more symptomatic of water quality issues.
Healthy fishes seldom get either fin rot,or fungus,or many of the other parasitic pathogen's.
You said to do 50% water changes? I've been doing 25%. Also I think I've found the reason for george's tail being damaged. Mark is becoming really aggressive and won't leave him alone so I'm planning on returning mark. And I really don't have the space to get females so I'm planning on sticking with males.
