Guppies unliking guppy?

TropicalFlow

I just got 2 new guppies. I had 2 before but one died... my other survived guppy got to meet these two new ones for the first time. He won’t stop chasing them around and pecking there bellies. I’m worried that the other guppies might die or somthing. They are all males. I am a intermidete fishkeeper. I’m running out of resources to use pls help

How bad is the nipping/chasing? It could just be them establishing the pecking order.

Well there’s no ripped fins yet, but the new ones are looking stressed. They are definetly being chased with no moment of peace
How long will it take for the pecking order I’ve had them for 5 days

I'm not entirely sure. If he is still attacking them in a week, I'd consider rehoming the aggressive guppy.

Okay, thank you...

A pecking order can happen in both an all male and an all female tank. if that's the case, the aggression will pass. But if this specific male is continuing the aggression, I'd take him out of there.
