hi everyone.
My question is........
can i just have a male on his own ?
or a couple of females and no male ?
as it seems to me that if i have a pair,and they spawn
then i have to remove the female.
I don't have another tank,so i would not be able to do this.
all i have is guppys(tones of fry)
and three corydoras.
The tank is a Jewl reckord 96,
thanks.

Females are usually silver in color so Eddie is right about the less colorful or maybe drab.
IMO, they will readily spawn in your tank but expect several fry not to survive in a community as you have guppies. As long as your guppies are well-fed, they may not eat the fry.
Well-fed livebearers will usually not try to eat the fry. At least in my experience.
