Default Breeding process for Neos?

So I've been reading about Neos and how they breed. Right now I am sure I have a female blue neo with a saddle, it is fairly visible. I'll attach a few pictures.

The tank I believe has 2 adult males but none of them seem to be interested in the female. I don't see them swimming around like "crazy" (which I've read is a sign of the pheromones?). Is this normal? The female has had that saddle for a few days now (maybe 5 or 6?)

First 2 picture is the female. Third is one I'm not sure if female or male. Then 4-5th pictures is the one I'm sure is a male.

Most of the time you don't see them mate. One day you'll see the female berried.

I'm sorry I think I didn't explain myself (english is 2nd language). I didn't mean I wanted to see them mate hahaha. I meant to ask if it was normal to have the female with the saddle for almost a week.

Yes it's normal, I've noticed they usually molt before being berried.
