    My one goldie is doing the big switcharoo, are there any preventative measures I should take to ease the drama thats about to unfold? Maybe add another one? I've got 5.

    No - unfortunately, this is what nature does, Gaboon. Nothing that you can do. Do you perhaps have another male already?

    No he's the first male. Is it the next one that turns into a male that I should worry about?

    Cool then. No - I think that the group is far too small. There should not be a "next one"....

    Hi Gaboon. From my experience with Goldie's, I noticed that if there is one male, the rest will remain females.
