|my Leartail Molly|
My orange Leartail Molly will not stop herassing my black moly female. I have female orange Leartail and a marble Leartail as well as a matching male for each. I currently have the 2 Leartail males in a catch net so that they will leave her alone. The marble male doesn't herass her as much as the orange one does and he seeks her out. I have no other tank to put him in how can I get him to stop herassing her (she isn't a leartail)? I have stuff on the top of the tank for babies to hide till I catch the babies and put them in my baby pen which is one of those floaters that sit on top of the tank in the water.

The lyretail part really doesn't make a difference to the male mollies. A female is a female. The best way to get them to not harass one female too much is to have more females. With mollies it is recomended to have atleast three females to each male. I don't know if your tank will support more females without some more info from you. You could also look at taking the one male back and just having the one male with the females.

I have a 20 gal. I am hoping for a 50 gal for Christmas. There are 4 femals and 3 males 1 dalmation 1 orange, 1 black male. Only the black male is a regular and he doesn't even try to mate with any. In females I have 1 dalmation 1 orange, 1 black, and one calico (an orange with black spots and white underbelly) the black and calico are regular. I also have 5 neons and a crowntail betta in the tank along with a petocoumus (sp?) to keep the tank clean

For that many males you should have atleast 2 more females preferably 5 more females. But your tank is not big enough to handle that many mollies. I would consider trading atleast one of the males in for a another female.

I would prefer to see a ratio of 1 male to 3 or 4 females. The bigger and more plants especially floating plants you have the less likely they will get annoyed by the males any way.
Once they start breeding to keep a good balance you will have to remove some of the males any way.
Have a look in [link=My Profile] http://www.fishprofiles.com/forums/member.aspx?id=1935[/link] for my tank info

Near enough is not good enough, therefore good enough is not near enough, and only your best will do.
