That's the problem with common names; it may be the same species and it may not.
Any shrimp is fine for use as they must be gut loaded. The shrimp itself is of little to no significant nutrition; the guppies are another problem all together.
While some of the proper nutrients are being passed to the frogfish (maybe) by gut loading prior to feeding, the guppy itself has a highly saturated fat count which is very bad for your fish.

As a marine species it needs food items of HUFA's or highly UNsaturated fatty acids.
