I have had my tank for 3 months and I am noticing that my male platy is a real pain in the neck with the females, actually nipping them etc if they won't let him get near them. I keep telling my husband that it's a typical guy thing-great dinner of brine shrimp and he gets all fired up and wants to have some fun. I want to get him out of the tank, but my husband says to let him go at them. Is this normal behavior? He bugs them till they are exhausted. I have 1 male and 3 females. he may just be oversexed?

Welcome to the forum I personally wouldn't worry too much about your platy at all, has he just started being more aggressive recently though?

When we took the male back to the LFS they put him in a tank full of jumbo platys, he wasn't looking so agressive then -

I have seen my male do that occasionally to my female. But he isn't really violent to her.
...is he head butting them in the middle? If so he's hoping for a free snack - gruesome but true!
