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?

it is possable 4 them to mate and maybe add more females to stop him goin for just that 1 female.....and if shes just had fry then he willl want to mate anyway and you carnt reallly dicourage him....is natural :D

I do have other females he mates with them also, but the one, it seems he never stops lol.

He must just like her more maybe get 2 more female that look just like her if your tank has the room for then
