African dwarf frog mating help

Hello everyone first post to the forum and not sure where I should post this.
I have 4 African dwarf frogs (1 female 3 males) that will not stop mating. For the past 3 weeks solid the female has had a passenger on her back I was just wondering if this is stressful for them and/or if it could possibly the water or feeding conditions? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thx

I'm sorry you have had no response on this issue up until now. I am going to equate it to nature and what I see from my Mollies and Swordtails... it's still nature. If you have 3 males harassing the female ongoing non stop... in time she will pass away from the stress. It is not possible for any creature to endure this non stop. My suggestion, asap, is to go get 2-3 more females if possible. If it is not,... then try to return 1 or 2 males and swap them for 1-2 females. Most "harems" are 1 male and 2-3 females. What size tank is all this happening in? If this is a 10 gallon there really isn't anywhere for her to go to get away. Are there lots of places for hiding out?
If none of this is an option, then possibly a divider for a few days to give her a rest.
Good luck... keep us posted on what you end up doing.

Yes, If you have healthy males, most pet stores would not mind swapping for a female. If this is not possible, just add more plants and caves so she can get away if she wants. How big is your tank?

Thanks everyone.
Its a 15G tank so ill add 1 or two? More females hopefully that helps I was getting worried about the stress. There are lots of places and plants to hide but the female seems to like to relax in the open or just swim around so adding more females sounds like my best option.
Thanks again forr the help and happy new years to everyone
