That is an indication to the male that she is ready to breed. As far as the bubble nest... If your lid is not sealed there's not enough humidity to keep the bubbles from popping. Try putting a piece of stirafom in so he can build the nest under it.

I never tried a cup. I use a flat piece. Does your filter provide too much surface agitation?

Vertical stripes mean she is willing to breed, horizontal are stress stripes which is not good when trying to breed.
He may have stopped tending it, bubbles don't last forever, how humid is the tank? This might also cause popage.
Why do you have them in a 30 gallon? Something smaller is better to try and breed in (I use a 5 gallon tub filled halfway for breeding).
