red platy ratio

is there a male/ female ratio i should adhere to with platies? i know they are rampant breeders, i just don't know if a male would harrass a single female to death.

2 or 3 females to every male works well.

3:1 females to males for the first male is what I like to go with and 2:1 after that. You will end up with lots of fry this way.
