???? . . . How were they swimming? When in breeding mode, one will follow the other - sort of "follow the leader" game. They will swim in a wriggly style covering the whole tank. But in fighting mode they just swim normally and if afraid will often dash away. This is why it's important that you understand this body language.
If male previously flared, and an aggressive female in fighting mode is released, they will fight. It is very unlikely the male would run away.
Since you're starting over, try a different male, a male that has a bubble nest in his solitary tank. He is more likely to be in breeding mode.
