Yes you can place more than one female in a breeding tank. But the male would only spawn with one; the dominant female. If you take her away after she has laid eggs, the male is unlikely to spawn with another female until his eggs are free swimmers. So he is most likely to chase the other female away. And don't forget that the other female would eat the eggs and or fry, if the male doesn't destroy them first ...... so what's the point?

i didn't really think of all this before i made the post. don't worry i am not going to try this after the things you guys have said. and i would not want to put any of my fish or my fry in any danger. for those who i have upset or disappointed in this thread i am truly sorry. I'm glad i posted it before i tried it. again thank you for your warnings and i am not going to try this.

Glad you are listening to the advice. It is safer for your fish to not try that. Maybe you should get another male or just wait and do the spawns one at a time. Try doing a lot more research before breeding please. :) Good luck in the future.

I know what you guys may think but i did it once with my plakat male, i removed him as soon as the fry started falling and gave him food while he was in the breeding tank so i put him in another tank while his babies were being born and he started making another bubble nest so i put another female and they did it again.

So sorry its been done many times :)

What you did is different from what the OP wanted to do. They wanted to remove the female during spawning and add a different female to the same tank.
