Embrace but no eggs

Everything was going perfectly. Grumpy spent all night building a magnificent nest and this morning they started embracing but i do not see any eggs released. Sterile female? Male too small? They are first time breeders. They are embracing multiple times under the nest and female not as stunned as the videos show.
What's the problem? Performance anxiety?

Update... eggs being released but male is more interested in blowing bubbles than picking up eggs. Eggs fall to floor and female is eating them. Will i have to get another male? Or just give him another try? At least i know who has the problem.

Update to update. Saw male picking up eggs earlier but not sure if they made them to nest. I took female out, male was chasing her away from nest. Thankfully no injuries. I'll know in a few days if any eggs made it. Next time i will put him in to breeding tank a day or 2 before the female to give him time to construct a nest. And maybe he will spend more time/attention breeding.
Keep your fingers crossed!!

Good job! You should consider making a spawn log to document the fry growth.

What does a spawn log entail? I am taking pics daily. You mean a log on the forum?
