Just a suggestion- don't use test strips, but a liquid test kit. API master is what most of us use. The strips are very inaccurate and you will no doubt get a very different reading from the liquid test.

Keep doing water changes and test the water (with the liquid test) until your nitrates are down.

I do agree that the female to male guppy ratio is a bit off for a 10 gallon tank. Not sure if they were harassed to death (exhaustion) or if it was the water parameters that did them in... sorry about the loss.


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!
