I got this 3-4 gallon aquarium with light and filter for 4 dollars. I'm making it a guppy tank. Is there enough oxygen being put in there from just the filter?

You just need surface agitation. You know when you are lacking in surface agitation is if the fish is gasping near the top.

I have a 10 gal guppy tank with just a filter and it has been up and running for months. You should be good! As stated above, just watch and make sure they aren't gasping near the surface. If so you might want to add a small air pump. Check kijiji or craigslist for some cheap ones, you will need the filter, aquarium tubing and an air stone of some sort. You can likely get all this for under $20, so if you notice the guppys opening and closing their mouths near the surface, you may want to invest. Another option is some live plants! Cheers and good luck!

any kind of filter should make some sort of disturbance which would bring enough oxygen into the water
