Female intimidated but wants to breed

So I have been looking everywhere on why my female hasn't spawned yet. When I took her out of the hurricane glass, she had vertical stripes, a belly full of eggs, swimming head down towards the male, wanting badly out of the glass, and even doing headstands. But after the better part of this day chasing and bubble nest building, the male keeps flaring at her and inviting her to the nest. There was one time I saw her go right underneath the nest and just float there. Then another time she was directly under the nest just resting. Then the male would nip her away or she would run away. But I have read that it can take up to 3 days for them to spawn after them chasing, etc. So, now my female has half vertical lines and half horizontal kind of. I think she definately wants to breed, but my male is still being too aggressive. I have a feeling in my gut that they are going to spawn tomorrow morning. Should I leave the light on the aquarium all night, I have heard? Anyways, a little help on what to do. I definately know the male wants to breed, but he just can't stop nipping and chasing her. He keeps at his bubble nest a lot as well right now. Should I just wait til tomorrow morning to see what happens?

TAKE HER OUT NOW. She has not rested since you got her! If you breed her now you are risking her health!

We have repeatedly told you to take her out, so please do it. No offense, but you don't know what you are doing!

Does every one of your problems need a thread by itself? You obviously don't give a crap what people are telling you, and just want to breed them immediately because you think your female is, "Ready". What you call ready probably means dying from lack of rest and stress-free living.

Do what you want. We aren't going to change your mind.

THANK YOU. Now don't put her back, not even if you think she is ready.
