My male is making me so mad

This is the 2nd male I've tried that has no clue what he is doing.
I have him in a spawning tank with a female. He has the biggest bubble nest i've ever seen, and the female is VERY interested.

He has wrapped her that i've seen atleast 20-30 times, but i've only seen eggs like 3-4 times. Most of the other times the wrap is completely wrong and she falls out.
When I do see eggs, my male isn't picking them up, he just comes out of his trance and keeps working on the nest.

i dont think theres anything I can do but I'm getting tired of all my spawn attempts failing.

He finally got the idea, I just saw him picking a couple up and putting them in the nest!
