You should really know the signs before you breed. Did you research? What is your set up like? What fry food do you have?

Chasing and flaring is normal as long as neither of them look stressed. If they get too aggressive you should separate them to prevent serious injury. Make sure there are lots of places for the female (or possibly the male) to hide.

Ok I have bbs and egg yolk. I am using a 10 gallon tank not all the way filled and I did research. They don't seem stressed.

Okay that is good. Just be careful with the egg yolk because I heard it can foul the water if you put too much. If there are not stressed I would leave them.

Check on them before you go to school. If they are not acting aggressively it's probably safe to leave them in there. ***It is a risk though any time you leave them unsupervised**

If you leave the light off and cover the tank to make it dark that may help them to stay quiet and less active while you are at school.

They're just not ready. You have to have patience when spawning. When they're ready they will spawn.
