I would advise conditioning them this time in total isolation so they can't see any other fish at all for the entire period. That might make them a little friskier when they're finally introduced. I would also try not jarring the female but just adding her at the same time you do the male (in the opposite side of the tank).
Yey sounds good! The female does appear to be swollen w eggs still. Once I get home tonight I'll get the female in isolation since the male is already. Would you suggest having one of them in the spawning tank to condition? I don't know much about betta territory so I don't know if it'd help or hurt to have one of them already established in that tank.
