Default guppies need help

i just got 2 guppies day!!! sound great right? (and i'll have pictures up soon)
But for the people that been reading threads i posted up i also have 3 endlers livebearers

So this is the problem...i got the guppies i left then in the tank with the bag to let it adject to the tempature for 30-35 mins and then i let them in the tank without pouring the water from the bag in.
everything looked fine...until a few mins later...the endlers starts chasing and biting the guppies at the tail or ventral fins or anal fins when they get near them or the other way around, when the endlers gets near the guppies

What should i do!?
its almost been 3 hours i had the guppies inside the tank


--------------------also
Ammonia is at 0.3ish
Nitrite is at 0.5ish
so i did i 20% water change

Endlers and guppys can be aggressive at times...........Rearrange the tank and disturb all of the fish with swishing motions. Turn out the lights or even cover the tank for a day. Some times this works and sometimes it don't.

You could maintain two separate tanks... you could get a divider for the one tank that they're in... you could return the guppies... its such a headache with aggressive fish sometimes ;p

I just want to yell 'you guys behave or I'm going to turn this aquarium around and we're all going home!'

My endlers were a little nippy at first but after the first day everyone calmed down. I would do what Dano says.

Are the Guppies still in good shape?
