Default Stressed male

Just had my 1 st lot of eggs. My female was a bit sluggish, she laid about 200 but is now eating & seems better, that was 2 days ago. Now the male is stressed, tail curled & he is very pink & looks like he is straining to drop more sperm !?!
Not sure what is wrong OR how long he will keep dropping sperm? & will she keep laying eggs ????
Please help -

They will continue to breed and lay eggs as long as conditions are right. If you want to prevent this, you should separate them.
