More males than females?

I have about 40 cherries and seems that the boys outnumbered the females, does it matter, females won't get stressed? thanks

I've never seen any stress with my cherries. They're pretty chill.

Plus shrimplets will more resemble males, so your estimate may be high.

don't think males really follow the females and bother them except when females are ready to mate... but when it comes to guppies... I know you need to have more females vs males since males will follow after females all day and night long... ^^

And females get to be much bigger than the males. An adult female could probably swat aside her male counterpart if he was annoying her.

Sounds good, more males for females to choose from.
