YAY!!! The chase is on. That part always scares me, so afraid they will hurt each other too much.

I believe the dragon scales will grow back. Scales grow back and I assume their color will as well. Is the female receptive at all? I know her color makes it difficult to tell...

I had three places where I kept jars: the shelves inside one of the lizard cages (Deimos's cage), a storage tub, and on racks in my closet.
Deimos's cage is heated via powerful heat lamps which just so happen to keep the cups at 80-84*F and no lower than 76 at night. Just a wonderful happenstance.
The storage tub was filled partially with water and has a heater in it. The cups are placed in it and kept at a constant 82*F (that's where your's were). The rack system is heated with reptile heating tape which keeps them at 76-80*F.

I knew scales grow back, but I was a little unsure if they grew back with the same color and shine as the prev scale.

Your heating method is VERY interesting! Unique and clever the way you described it. Does it get extremely cold where you live?

I know how you feel! I'm terrified and wish he would just stop! Though SHE is also the "meany." She bit a little off of the males anal fin.

Update:

The male still only has that tiny bubblenest and is still chasing. So far I am only worried about the bubblenest and I know I shouldn't be, but is there something that I can do about that? The answer is probably no, but it's worth a try lol.

the size of the bubble nest don't mean anything.(before breeding)
have a few male with more egg in the nest then bubble.
a few male breeding with out a nest.
if the male is smart
after breeding he should increase the size of the nest.
if not then he got to do a lot of work.
picking up the egg/fry off the ground.

Thats why I asked if you were going to upload lol. Are you going to upload them seperate or are you going to edit them together to make like a documentary movie?

Hopefully he will increase the size of the nest. And hopefully the female will stop bullying the pretty guy.

I am going to edit them into one to make a movie. Here is the first clip of the Movie:

http://youtu.be/vmMoZPFeKhM (I'm sure you know how to go on from there.)

Oh...*oops* lol. Also I am a bit happy that she shows him that she isn't too scared and nips back because he was really hurting her before. I just want the chase to end and see the "love" (Embrace) happen.
