Hi, my current temp in the tank is 25.C. I dropped it from 28C.
The Dom Male BN isn't interested in breeding, just fighting with all the other BN'S.
I have two logs in, should I put more logs in?
And how many female to one male should I have?

First things first..

What size tank?
How many males do you have? and how many females?
What are their approx sizes?
Can you post a picture of the set up you have at the moment.

Usually the males "fight/chase" the others away when they have claimed territory. If there are not enough hiding places they will keep chasing eachother.

I suggest 2-3 caves/decent hiding places per male. I have 2 males 5 caves & 6pcs natural driftwood that also has hidey holes. I barely see them chasing eachother except at dinner time Very Happy

I would chuck in a few more caves, He is chasing the females away because he is getting ready to mate, give him a week & he will be inviting them in Wink
