( I like your terminology), or at least the males are trying to. It seems to be the sole purpose in a male live-bearer's life. I haven't kept any in a while, but it always amazed me how much "activity" goes on 'round the clock day after day to produce a single batch of babies. All this means is that your fish are healthy; water parameters, temperature, and other conditions are good and they can concentrate on other things besides just survival. Congratulations!
The 'many females' sugestion will work great as the males will spread their affection around to all, thereby giving individual females periods to relax.
One died a couple days later and the 2 that remain aren't going after eachother at all. So as sad as it is to lose one, I'm happy the remaining ones can relax and just LIVE!
