Question Sailfin mollie ALWAYS trying to mate w/ dalmation mollie..

Sail-fin mollie wont stop trying to mate with dalmatian mollie...he chases all other fish who go near her and is always nipping at her butt area...she inst pregnant(just had her fry about 2 weeks ago) So is there anything i can do to dicourage him from trying to mate soooooo often? I havnt seen any signs of stress, but could this stress her out alot?
