Just saying guppies can actually handle extreme amounts of salt, not that you would want to...

Post the parameter readings,just because the tank is cycled doesn't mean the nitrates can't be high.

Weird. Your pH is low for guppies- and though I doubt this is having such an effect on them, maybe you should pick up some crushed coral at a petshop and add it to their water. It might give them an extra boost if nothing else. Guppies are tough as nails but there's a slight chance that's your problem.

It'd probably be in the saltwater section.
I know some rocks work too.. Texas holey rock is one that is unmistakable.

What? That's really weird... Same source water?
You could but it will make parameters unstable and isn't the best idea.
