Buying female apistogramma agassizii double red

I have a male and female apistogramma agassizii and they don't get along well. My female has tried to spawn twice but my male wants nothing to do with her. And when she isn't spawing he chases her around the tank and snips at her tail. She has some damage. She is a good sport though and she doesn't seem to be affected by it. I just wish for it to stop because I dont want her to go through that. What do you think I should do? Should I get one more female? Two more? I don't want to get rid of them because my local fish store wont take them for nearly the price I bough them for. I have a 29 gallon tank. How much do you think this would cost? Also can I mix apistogramma agassizii species?
 
Maybe separate them for a bit and re-introduce them? I heard that these don't pair up and instead the male will try to spawn with multiple females.
