Are balloon mollies who just gave birth more "desireable" to the males?
My balloon Molly who just gave birth is being chased around like crazy by the 2 males in the tank! D: She's had enough stress and they just won't leave her alone now. any idea why?
Would not move her to breeder net due to stress that these often cause the fishes. Would perhaps purchase a new or used ten gal tank and cycle the tank so that you have someplace for females to rest or to keep fry once 29 gal becomes overpopulated.
my female guppy finished giving birth 1 hour ago and the males havent left her alone....so i turned my light out to give her time to rest...maybe try that :):):)
The same thing happened to my sailfin molly that just gave birth a few days ago. The male has 2 other females to choose from but is glued to the 3rd one that just gave birth. Hopefully he leaves her alone soon!
