Question aggressive female

So I released my female from her floating cup as my male had built an impressive nest, hard to say if she was ready (too light to see bars)..but I thought Id try it. She immediately went to check on the nest and then checked out the rest of the tank (male still displaying for her), but after awhile she started nipping at him, got quite a few nips on him but not a mark on her. I removed her back to her cup for a day and tried again with the same aggressivness. Could this be that she just may not have been quite ready to spawn yet and didnt take to well to the male pestering her? Should I condition for another week and try again, see if shes more receptive? Or maybe try a more aggressive male that will be able to hold his own against her?..she did run when he nipped her at first but when she started nipping back he was the one running...

I would either change to a more agressive male or change to a less agressive female. They sound ready to go though. Females seem to test the male to see if he is a domonate male. Other wise keep a good eye on them if you decide to release that female again.
Tell us what you decide to do.
