Guppy Breeding log (Everything is ready)

BassaraAhara

Yeah, so everything is ready. Except the fish. My desired male (Sunrise) tries desperately to mate but is unsuccessful, because the female he's interested in is a lot bigger and manages to swim away before he can use his gonopodium. Should I use a smaller female? He's gorgeous btw, leopard guppy with a lavish tail x a fancy guppy. I have a platinum snow guppy (Sundown) but he's very young and doesn't even bother trying to mate. His desired female is also very old (Eve), so she may not be able to have guppies anyway, but the others can.

It shouldn't matter wether a female is big or small in order to let a male try to mate. But the female itself decides wether she allows a male to mate with her or not no matter how long a male is trying to mate.
