balloon mollie question
 
we have just recently got 3 balloon mollies and apparantly 1 female and 2 male- or will this cause problems? we weren't sure of their sex at first...

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
