Aggressive male platy

mduran613

I have a 20g tank that has 3 platyfish. 2 females and 1 male. Both females are pregnant. One has already had its first batch of fry. So the male platy is super aggressive only towards one female. He doesn't let her eat and she's always in hiding. Is there anything I can do to calm him down?

Ps all three were purchased at the same time.

Hmm, maybe add a few more females if you have space. It will help take the stress off just the one, and should keep the male pretty busy.

You'd have a ton of fry... then again you will be having a ton of fry anyway!
