It may cause problems, as the males may relentlessly harass the females by trying to breed with them. The suggested sex ratio for livebearers is one male to 2 or even 3 females.

yea i agree with iamntbatman - try taking one male back to the lfs and trading it for a female. Females can die from stress if the males are constantly chasing and harrasing them. good luck :D
