Ugh... Ok.. this is going to be long.
First off.. your breeding VT. This means all your babies will be VT. VT are NOT in demand so you'll have a hard time placing them, even on craigslist, even for dirt cheap. Just keep that in mind.
The reason your female got attacked is because you threw her straight into the tank without properly introducing her. First of all you are introducing the female into a tank that the male already lives in so he is going to defend his territory. This is going to make him even more aggressive than it would if you had introduced the pair in a proper spawning tank. This is why most breeders have a separate spawning tank and then have two other tanks that the male and female live in the rest of the time. Second of all you didn't leave her in the hurricane glass long enough. The male should be going back and forth between nest sites and flirting with the female. He should be flaring for her but not trying to attack her.. there is a big difference. After they've gotten a chance to get to know each other you can let her out while the male is not looking so at first he doesn't know she's loose. Make sure there is a LOT of cover in the tank so she can hide properly. Here is a picture of one of my old spawning tanks that is similar to your set up.. notice how much java moss I have. This enables the female to hide easily from the male so he cannot find her and will stop chasing her.
In my opinion it is better to not condition them together. I prefer to only let them see each other for the last couple of days before you introduce them. My reasoning behind this is because the female might become ready too quickly and release her eggs in her jar causing you to have to re-condition all over again. Of course everyone has their own methods they use but this seems to be pretty popular among breeders.
