Livebearing fish need a heavily planted surface to feel secure. This is why you should plant the tank well in advance of introducing the fish. Guppies are flat backed fish and live a good part of the time near the surface. So, get as many individual stems of Hornwort and Anacharis as possible. Just drop the stems into the tank. This provides a food supplement and hiding areas.
Keep the tank water free of dissolved fish wastes by working up to the point you're removing and replacing half the water every week.
