Okay I was just not giving him enough time b/c now he is flaring.
Does my male have to have a bubble nest before releasing my female?

I heard some males don't build a bubblenest until they need one, but it is definitely preferable.

Some will spawn without a bubblenest.

I just put my female in the breeding tank with the male and they are not fighting or anything. Why? Do you know?

Usually, from what I've read in spawn logs, the male will be busy working on his nest and the female will watch, maybe approach the nest and get chased off if he's not ready. Some nipping and chasing is normal but if they really go at each other like they're going to kill each other then they should be separated. Leave them in there for now and keep an eye on them.

In my experience they take a while to get used to the tank. Both of them are probably checking out their surroundings and will be shy for a couple hours. With my pairs, if fighting breaks out it usually starts after they're used to the breeding tank.

Hope you can see the eggs . . . no nest. The eggs are scattered (there's a mild breeze). When they're done, the male usually groups them in one area - but without a nest.

Mine usually react immediately when they see each other - either fight or flirt.
