The only time a male and a female can be together is for breeding.
We condition our fish to be in top shape for the spawning.
When I put my fish in the tank I'm sure to have at least half my tank choked with live and plastic plants. My female goes into a jar or lantern chimney and when the male builds a nest and she seems ready I release her. A couple hours or days of chasing and biting will occur. Then she'll decide she's not scared anymore and swim right up to him and his nest with her head down and fins clamped wiggling her body in a S motion.
Here's one way people introduce them:
Here's how I introduce them, the female is placed in a class chimney so the male can't reach herese are my Red VT pair th: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1hhIzcqyOk
