Usually nest building begins about 24 hours before actual egg deposition. Watch for female eye coloration and barring. Are you noticing any changes? Make certain she can easily avoid his advances. If practical consider placing a partition of sorts into tank that she can hide behind and possibly control interactions.

Watch for changes in how she orients her body when male approaches. That coupled with coloration changes can be very informative about reproductive inclinations of a fish.
