Moving bonded panduro to another tank

How do I move them to another tank without breaking up the pair bond? They’ve spawned at least 5 times for me and I need to clean out the tank because the silicone is wearing off.

Panduros do not form bonded pairs actually. They form a bond only so long as breeding is successful. If they have produced fry before and have no other fish with which to pair off they should continue as they have in the past.
 
Ok, I tried moving them to the new tank and the first thing the male did was chase the female around...what should I do now? I know that they’ve spawned successfully before, but now he won’t stop chasing her around
 
I’ve tried using mirror therapy to try and distract the male but know he’s just flaring at his reflection and flaring at the female. Is there anything else I can do?
 
Ok, I checked up on them and the female looks completely different; she looks almost exactly like a male now; what does this mean?

If the silicone is wearing/coming off are you going to reseal the tank?
About the male, I must not have seen the first post about the 5 spawns.
