Male guppy chasing other male

Abrookesi

Hello! I am new here. I have a 50 gallon community tank with three male guppies, two male swordtails, three mollies, a bristlenose pleco, some tetras... etc. I've had two of the male guppies for a few weeks and they co-existed fine (one dark blue, one bright orange, if it matters). Last night I added the third male guppy (bright red) and the bright orange guppy keeps aggressively chasing him. Will this cease over time once they figure out their pecking order, or do I need to add more male guppies so it's not so one against the other? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Could just be a dominance thing. So, they could be having a pecking order. If that's the case, it will pass. But adding more guppies could break the harassment a bit more.
