Silver dollar breeding help

Hi all,
I have two red hook luna silver dollars around eight years old, one male, one female. I've caught them about three times in the last month doing their little dance, but haven't seen a single egg. Any ideas why not? Thanks!

I believe they scatter the eggs. Not 100% sure on this. If you have any bottom dwellers they will eat them as they are dropped.

I've watched them through the process and never seen a single egg drop...are they really small? Ido have corys...maybe they didn't finish the dance? How long does it take?

Are you sure there not fighting for dominance or something
