Not really sure what to say but I suggest you keep a 1:2 ratio. Two females to each male.

LOL! It wont take long before these guppies overpopulate your tank. A well.planted tank + guppies = population boom I can stil remember my planted tanks so crowded with guppies since the fry were adept at hiding and able to grow enough to escape cannibalism.
