Your water looks fine, I would do a water change, use some form of stress coat, then use a treatment of a all in one medication made by tetra. That will cure any disease that may be killing off your guppies.

You could also try quarantining the guppies in a small tank for a week or two but that's risky. Have you went to the LFS and asked about their guppies water quality and stuff? Because the LFS may have had a disease recently that could have killed off the guppies.

Could it potentially be PH shock killing the new fish? If you're only floating the bag, the temperature will change, but not the PH. Do you slowly add your tank water before adding the new fish?
