Cool Female is driving me crazy

The male and female have been in the breeding tank for about 3 days now. the female is in her glass jar of course. the male is showing all the right signs, full bubble nest, chasing, flaring. When the female is in the jar she has it all right, the swimming back and forth, verticle lines super interested trying to get to the male at all cost, so i release her. boom she swims over to a corner and sits there for hours until the male comes to chase her so she runs and then swims back to the corner to sit, wants nothing to do with breeding. i dont know what to do

Re-condition them for 5-7 days and attempt again.

Recondition and try again later.
The female seems to have low mentality or easily stressed. Next time when you release her, do it as gentle as possible and make sure she has enough time to calm down (?) before meeting the male (specially if he is too aggressive).
