It sounds like they are trying to mate but, once again, they may be getting ready but waiting for the right conditions to happen to actually mate.
As for the breeding organs, it varies by fish. A female's tube will be just slightly larger than the diameter of her egg. The male's organ won't be as large , circumference wise, but will be long enough to fertilize the eggs by passing over them and releasing his milt without actually touching the eggs.
Keep us posted
