Molly male and platy female

This picture shows the story of the red female platys life...! He won't leave her alone. Even more so after they've been fed. He will hide under her slowly then pounce to try and mate she seems to get quite stressed is this just the natural way or should I do something? Thanks in advance

That should solve aggression. He just wants a girlfriend but she definitely doesn't!

With most male livebearers they don't really care if the female is of another species. specifically, if his own kind isn't available. And yes, it's a natural thing... Like already told by others; get more females into the tank...
