There are many different reasons. if you are trying to breed them he is nipping her to get her attention. He might not like her. If you are not trying to breed them you should consider separating them, because if they breed the male will kill her as soon as she has the eggs. she also might kill him if he nipps her too much. Your male is most likely to be nipping because he wants to breed with her.
