Phoenix

This is my beatiful CT Red Male named Phoenix. I seriously need to get a better camera :D He's in a 10 gallon tanks with his harem Siren, Shiva and Sunset.

/facepalm

Just realised the girls names all started with S.

Tank isn't devided. He tends to stay in his area but he does interact with the girls.

That is very dangerous... I would be very VERY careful if i were you... and keep another tank for him if the girls should decide they dont want a male around.

I still have Phoenix old tank still cycled and ready to go, but I keep watch on them all day since the tank is next to my desk where I spend most of my day. The only aggression I've seen was the first couple days when they all went into the tank together. They have their own caves and plants to hide in.

Handsome fish, but I have to agree with Gizmo, that makes me nervous!

honestly the worst that had happened is my girl Sunset has a case of ick which I'm currently treating the whole tank for. The other three aren't showing signs, but since its a parasite, I'm not risking their health. I got a breeder trap that I can put any troublemakers in for a time out...I also have spare tanks incase they need seperated permanently.

Eww, ick, my fish has it too D:

He's a pretty boy, hopefully they all stay nice to each other so they don't have to be separated. It seems okay, as long as they're getting along and you're prepared to separate them as soon as it might become necessary.

You put your fish in time out if they cause trouble? I'm sorry, but that is probably why you may have ich...
It is wide spread in all freshwater fish but appears to be more common in aquarium fish, possibly due to the closer contact and stress involved with aquarium species.
There are many causes of stress in a fish's life, many of which can be made worse or better by the owner. Water temperature, water quality, tank inhabitants, improper diet, and a variety of other factors all contribute to stress.
Your females most likely don't want the male hanging around, nor does the male want a "harem" of females flustering about. Seperating them into a breeder cup that stays in the aquarium for a "time out" is most likely stressing them out even further.
I'm not calling you a bad fish parent... just... they can only tolerate being in the same tank for so long, then they will turn.
