If you are trying to breed for a specific trait you can isolate the biggest or brightest male and breed it with dozens of females. Otherwise, a one to one ratio is fine.

Thanks orin, let's say however that i am looking to have the minimum amount of males per female what is the minimum ratio of males you would want to have per female. I usually feed off my excess males just wondering where i should stop in order to keep all the females fertile.

For hissers, it does not take many males at all! Mine are about 1:8 ratio and seem to do fine. Though would production be better with more males? That is an Orin question for sure. Odds are, yes. But how many is enough? That seems relative to how many you feed off....
