I've also noticed that the females when small dont hold for long



great advice bud. thanks for clearing that up for me. so i guess having 2 males rest females should work or the other male prob die?

i like having 3 males.. but you can do 2.. it also depends on the fish sometimes you get a hyper dominant fish thats just a jerk and kills any other males... i have really good luck with 3m/6f combos for a bunch of groups of fish... fish will breed with just 1 male but i dont think as much.. the other males really make the dom male stay lit up and wanting to breed
