Hey,

I have a few harlequin rasbora's that want to lay eggs, but this issue is I have this one alpha male that is a little older that constantly courts her and chases away the other younger males. When it comes time to laying the eggs and fertilizing, the female can easily flip upside down and is ready to go, but this one dominate male gets half way to getting on his side then gives up (it reminds me of an old man struggling to move). Should I just remove him from the tank and let one of the younger ones take over?
 
Hi and welcome to the forum :)

He could be getting distracted by the other males or just useless as a fish. Try removing the others and leaving 1pr in the breeding tank. If he doesn't perform, swap him for another male.
