Guppy Aggression

Okay, so my six are starting to get rather hostile with each other. It's at the fin-nipping stage right now but I can see it escalating. Even my most mellow guppy, Moon, is getting in on it as well. What can I do to calm them down besides go through a guppy explosion? I was skimming through a couple other threads thanks to Google and a few words caught my eye - would a female betta make the pipe down? or is there another way to get them to not be up in arms?

do you have enough plants to break the line of sight? Enough hiding spots? Those may help.

o 3o do not have more than I mentioned in the 10g thread I made where I announced them... will try to get more pots though. And just as backup, is there fish that would assist with keeping them broken up?

Peeking over WetWebMedia and I'm considering buying another 2-3. Think this might help out? The tank we got them out of had maybe upwards of 15 of them in it - I know we got approximately half of them, so...
