I'm not a breeder, but if they are tearing up the nest then I think it's time to start over and get the female out of there.

If she's getting torn up then, yeah, I'd remove her.

A recent female did this. I removed her for a day and replaced her with a new female. Then I took out the new female and replaced the old female, good spawning behavior :)

Usually (with my pairs) the female is very scared. My black delta tore up a female and last week she was really scared of my halfmoon. I jarred them next to each other and now she's not afraid.
