i had a pair do just that. they both ate together and stayed under the nest together but never spawned!

i guess this works both ways haha, two aggressive fish= no breed.
two non aggressive = no breed
got to get the right combo, but i agree that purposely gettin a female beat up is not good.
ime, that has only made the female have male phobia-making her never want to approach any male again.
