Green Terror Breeding? Help!

I have two green terrors that are both about 5 inches, one male and one female. I have had the female for a couple months but I got the male last week hoping that they would breed. The female has her breeding dress on and is very dark, but they haven't bred yet. The male continues to shake in front of her and flashes off a lot, but the female seems very disinterested. The male continues to chase her, nipping at her fins as if he's trying to force her to lay her eggs. I'm wondering if I should continue to let them do this behavior or should I put a divider in for a couple days and let her heal up. I am just concerned that if I put the divided in that it might break up their breeding cycle. Any advice? There's plenty of slate and flat surfaces for her to lay her eggs on as well.

I'd try taking them out and rearranging the aquascaping. Once returned they are in a totally new place and should bond.

Divider may be good so they can get used to each other in safety.
