Can someone help me with torn fins during spawning?

Hi, so I had to stop my first spawning due to some serious fin rips. Half of the male's tale is gone, and his anal, pelvic, and dorsal fins are badly ripped. The female is also torn up, OMG she looks like a crowntail male!!! I've been treating them with saltbaths and have been adding water conditionar(it hellps treat damaged fins) I REALLY NEED HELP 'cause the female isn't mine(borrowed)!!! I have switched my current male (Orange)with my most kindest male- Dead Sunlight. He's making a good sized bubblenest, but the female isn't looking to good. Please help me with my torn fin problem!!!

Answer as quick as possible, cause I don't want the female to die!!! The female is Maryrox's!!!

It is normal to have some torn fins on both the male and female, if the male is too aggressive you have to make it hard for him to get to the female if he is too aggressive and if he corners her she will be killed or she will fight you have seen by his fins and hers...
When she is ready to spawn she will go to the male so you have to provide lots of cover for her and make it hard for him to get to her with either fake or real plants and a tank large enough and full of water
