How can I get my guppies to stop biting each other?

I have 10 guppies in my tank. Some of them are missing parts of their tails. I've heard that they sometimes bite each other. How can I get them to stop?

Guppies are known to nip at the fins of others. Make sure they have a large enough tank - 40 liters per 10 fish. Guppies are social fish and can be housed with Mollies, Corydoras and other peaceful fish. The ratio of male guppies  is one to 3 females.  The male often bullies the females, so provide plants for the females to hide in.
