Aggressive guppy

We inherited a freshwater tank when we bought our house 3 months ago. There were 3 tetras. A couple months ago we added some fish. We have 2 Mickey platys and a male gup (other died within a week). We have never had problems with aggression. Yesterday we bought 2 neon tetras, a sword lyretail and a yin yang guppy. Now the 1st guppy (heís tiny) is being agressive to almost everyone. He chases and nips, gets them cornered. What are the chances this will pass? I wasnít surprised when there was some aggression to the newbies, but why the platys that heís been with? Petco employee seemed sure that all these should be fine together

I’m not extremely familiar with guppies . But I’m trying to cover the basics are you sure of the sex of all these fish?

Edit after reading again. There’s only one guppie?
