Are you sure he doesn't already have eggs in there?
He will only let her in to spawn, and then he will chase her off as vigorously as he would anyone else.

My guys don't chase the girls, they are just Macho chick magnets
My guys hang out in their caves showing off their skills to entice the girls into their dens. Once in, they are not allowed out until the males think they've laid a sufficient quantity of eggs, then the girls are unceremoniously kicked out and told to stay out. Mine are common BN though- my orange spots are not permitted to repopulate until they are in their new tank lol.

Do you have photos of them and their breeding log? Also, what size tank is it, and who do they share it with?
