I am pretty sure the thai way is to add the pair at the same time to the breeding bowl. The pair are kept next to each other in glass containers and then they add the pair together at the same time to the bowl.

Here is a good video on it.

There are several variations on it. I have seen videos showing females in bottles inside the tank with a male as well as side by side in jars. The point is to make sure they have already been acquainted before putting them in the bowl together. The body language and behavior is the same.

The basic principle is the small container. Whether female in bottle or immediately released is personal reference. But female in bottle method is far safer.

I usually put both in at the same time. IME many of my females become stressed if confined in a jar while a male freely flares at them.

I usually let them see each other an hour or so then I release her...If there are just 2-3 bubbles blown it generally means by morning there will be a big nest....
