    I wouldn't add females - then you'll be overrun with fry (and they won't all be eaten). I'd rehome one of the males.

    Sounds like you need a new tank. I just had to transfer a swordtail because he is such a wuss he has been beaten so bad his sword isn't even straight anymore. I only had two males in the 40 gallon tank with 6 females. The one was a pimp and kept all the gals and beat the other guy up till he got to the point of constintly hiding under low plants.

    The ratio of males to females is 1:2, I'd try getting two more females.
