Male platy

suddenly one morning, i noticed that my only male platy was harassing my 3 females

he would sneak up behind them and then it looks that his nipping at their scales, not fins

Any ideas?

Pretty much. It probably does bother the females a bit, but he's definitely got a plan. If you don't want to breed them, take the male out, but you have a perfect ratio of males to females, so it's not stressing the females as bad as if you had only a male and a female
