Livebearers (guppies, platies, mollies, etc.) are very prolific, so having a male and female would DEFINITELY produce babies, babies, and more babies. Being very prolific fish, the male will constantly harass the female to mate, stressing the female, which is the reason you should have at least 2-3 females for each male. When I use to breed guppies, I would place the female that just produced babies, for about a month, in a seperate tank with community fish, with the exception of other guppies. This way, the female would be able to rest and not be harassed by the male.

Keep in mind, if you plan to have babies, you need to figure a way to dispose of them. Over time, you will have more than 100 babies and may not know what to do with them all.
