Hey y'all!! So I have had platys for over a year now and NEVER have I seen any of them be aggressive...until yesterday lol. I had 1 male platy survive (his mother died shortly after having babies). He was in my 20 gallon community until my 55 was ready. While my 55 was cycling I had 3 females in QT. I add the lone male first and about a week later the females. Everyone was getting along...clearly because all females are pregnant 😂. Yesterday I added a male and female platy. They are about 2 or 3 months old. I can't remember exactly when my friend said they were born. But the OG male is relentlessly chasing both of them away, he has turned into a stalker. I can kind of understand him showing aggression to the new male, hierchary and what not buttttt to the female too??? Do you think they will settle down? I am a bit shocked in his behavior to new friends 🤔
