LOL Right?

If you truly want them to mate, having one male to several females is the way to go. Think about what you are going to do with all the babies though. They have several, they grow fast and then you will need to remove the babies and separate by sex or you will have all kinds of inbreeding going on. I am sure it is normal to some degree but from what I have read, it makes for weaker fish.
