No, depends how u are splitting them?

Separate tanks/divider? Your females may actually benefit as they will get rest periods especially when they are pregnant. But I would say as long as they have enough room and clean water it should be ok. Your males may chase each other around with no females but can't do any harm!

Going to split them in seperate tanks, I think, dividers could dislodge.
