My orange female swordtail seems to be being nipped under the belly by the male yellow swordtail and even a male guppy is bugging the female. What's up with that? Safe? Trouble?
thanks

The males are probably nipping her because they are breeding. Have they ever breed before or is this their first time?

Yeah they do that when they breed. My orange male guppy always goes after my female swordtail. I'm guessing because they're both orange
