Female has breed before (15 months)
Male has never breed (1 year)

I placed my female in with my male last night and things were fine at first. He knew she was there and didn't do anything. In about 20 minutes he walked over and bit her right on the nose. She was squeeling and shaking like crazy. I just left them and hoped she was okay. He let go after awhile and walked away. She started to move around the tank about 10 minutes after that and Drako even walked by her a few times. Then 20 minutes later he walk right up to her again and bit her right in the eye! She again squeeled and shook. This time he was pulling her skin and I could see HIS eyes were pressed in like he was biting hard! I opened the lid and poked Drako because I feared for her eye. He let go and I took the female out to check out her eye. It was fine, but she was a little scared. I put her back in her own tank and left her there for the night. I think this weekend I'll put him in her cage. This way he may not be so territorial (as Mike suggested). If Drako is still doing this I'm not sure what to do.

Is this normal???
Is it because he has never breed and doesn't know what to do?
What can I do and tips? eg. temps or different cage all together

Any help would be great!

Thanks,
Liz
