I don't think they're ready/want to spawn just yet. They should be flirting so don't release the female until they do. And you don't need to hawk eye them before you release.
If the male doesn't flirt after a day or two, try placing an aggressive male (in a jar) and let them flare it out for a while. On the following day, reintroduce the female. She will usually flirt if she sees a flirting male.
