So...I have one mean male guppy.
There once was an aquarium that had 3 neons and three male guppies...

the next day there were 2 guppies...
that night, one...and one replaced...
2 days later just one lone mean guppy.

We found out that he was actually attacking the other guppies...

Now he is going after the neon comrades, and he is pretty, so I do not want to bring him back. I got him 2 lady friends. When I introduce them, I do not know how to deal with the wee ones...I don't really want wee ones...I brought the girls in to chill the male out. should I just let nature run its course?

with guppies, expect "wee ones"
theyre really not hard to care for and unless theres a ton of hiding spaces alot will get eaten anyway unless you remove them to another tank.. if you want to raise them a little bottle of "livebearer food" will do the trick for feeding(its like a super fine powder of flakes).. after a week or two youll be fine with flake food ground into a powder and slightly increase the size of the ground up flakes as the fish are growing..
