Breeding striped whn not paired with being eggy and such can also be "submission" stripes, to show she's less dominant/not wanting to pick a fight and what not(or so i've heard).

Well, now he isnt running.... he just refuses to make his nest. I have tried almost everything but still..........NOTHING. I might try with a new pair. But not ready to give up yet.

You might just need to separate and recondition them..give them time! :) They just weren't ready! Sometimes they need a little more time to be super ready to breed.

No, tail types do not affect breeding in any way.

Not to be rude, but you haven't answered any questions about your set up and how you conditioned them... it could make a difference in why they aren't breeding. And please don't tell me they are still in the same tank without a divider of some sorts.. =)

I had a male do this too, what I did was introduce another male into the tank. That encourages the natural dominant nature of the male. Plus if the female was being overly aggressive and chasing him, it will make her become submissive due to having two males to deal with instead of one. Normally the males don't get right down to fighting, they posture and blow bubbles at each other before anything physical happens. I take the new male out once the spawing male is feeling cheeky but always before any real fighting. You wouldn't want to damage the fish .
Good luck btw!!

while this is good advice from an experienced breeder, this sounds like a very bad idea for a "rookie".

I would wait a while and try reconditioning before adding another male into the mix.

No offense, BR.
