Is what male livebearers do. Adding three to four females per male can sometimes help but if female is ripe,they'll hound her. I notice you have no other tanks listed under your aquariums so moving her to an established ,(cycled) tank to rest is not an option?
Would not move her to breeder net due to stress that these often cause the fishes. Would perhaps purchase a new or used ten gal tank and cycle the tank so that you have someplace for females to rest or to keep fry once 29 gal becomes overpopulated.
