Welcome to the forum. It might make babies, but it will need help. That's a male.

He needs a female to make babies, yes. He either just finished Thanksgiving dinner, or he may be a bit bloated.

Only if you want babies. And if you do get a female, be prepared for a lot of babies. A lot. Really a lot.

Unless you want to see a lot of little fish, he doesn't need a female. But if you do want to see a LOT of little fish, then two females for every male is the prefered ratio.

As stated above, if you want fry then yes, two females will be about right.

I don't really want fry. I have a 20 gallon tank and not really looking to upsize. Will he naturally do his thing? Today, he is at the bottom of the tank. It seems he got to big. Is this natural? Will he be ok without the help
