That could cause a few problems :p.

Yep, Neptune is correct. If you are not looking to breed, you should re home the female. Boys will be boys. They will constantly try to mate with the female, giving her no peace and quiet.
They say 2/3 females for every male is a good ratio. If you are not breeding, all males or all females works better.

damn ill see what happens and if they breed i will take the female back and see if they will swap it for a male
