Look with a flashlight to see Eggs. Their eggs are big , you won't miss them if there are some (look similar to salmon roe)

well just looked after they were in the rock together and saw these ....not even had the male 2 weeks yet (bought 2 males)but she was pestering him from the minute he went in the tank as well as the smaller one but this male was interested in her so we got a seperate tank to put them 2 in as they were being disturbed by the other fish in main tank and just over 24 hours later theres these so excited Click image for larger version

Good clean water can drive fish to spawn..
So changing tanks multiple times may have actually encouraged them..

they were doing it in main tank hence why we moved them to another tank so they had no threats but when we moved them it was main tank water we used and topped the main tank up after they went into smaller tank
