So both fish have been conditioned for about 3 weeks and have been released in the same tank for about 1.5 days now, with another 1 with her in a jar in the tank (she's fat and displayed breeding stripes almost straight away, is still clearly showing them).
what I'm worried about is that now she spends a lot of time in a corner of the tank up the top with her nose in the air. She wriggles like mad when he comes near her but other than that will stay there for like 15minutes not really moving much. Is this normal?
I mean that's not all she does, she hides in her cave, swims around with her head down, and they chase eachother, she flares at him and sometimes she will get sick of being chased and run at him a few times, but at his face and body not his fins which I havnt seen before (though I've only bred a few times before).
Any help would be really appreciated!

Thank you! They've had the embrace at least 4 times now but never any eggs? This is their first breeding I think he may be having trouble getting the position right?
