Blue eye cichlid

My male blue eye cichlids keeps attacking the female even though they have previously had 2 batches of eggs together I'm getting worried as the female is constantly stressed and starting to get hole in the head disease will it be ok to remove the female for a short while I medicate the female or should I do the whole tank

Remove the female to another tank. I would just keep her in 80 degree perfect water. Add a little cichlid salt and good aeration. See if you get some healing.
