From what you say, she sounds like she is ready, and they are flirt swimming. Let her out IMO.
What does it look like when they are flirting?

Flirting is Swimming in an "S" kind of way. But that doesn't mean he won't tear the female to sheds (the aggressive males). Only few males are docile enough to not leave scars on the female.

If your female is a first time breeder, I'd let her float in the breeding tank for 2 days or so. You see they (most of them) need a longer time before they're ready to embrace - which means a longer time to get beaten up by the male.

Release the female in the late afternoon, before dark. Don't use lights so they will become inactive but can still sense each other. Hopefully they will embrace the following morning/afternoon.

As long as her color remain vibrant, she will eventually come out and approach the male then hide again when she gets bitten. But in time, they will eventually spawn. Just make sure the female has hideouts so she doesn't get too badly beaten.

Like every male shows different behavior on each spawn, females too are different. Some are ready to spawn almost immediately while others can take up to a week. On average it takes 3 days for a first time breeder to spawn.

I've been scanning the posts and even though this one is a bit old thanks for the info! My female is a first time and I've had her in a breeding cage for a day. She's white so I can't see breeding stripes but I've seen the "s" swim from her along with the flirty flaring. I was planning on letting them flare through the breeder for two days, its nice to see it was the right thing to do :)
