Default CPD Breeding tank!

I've decided to set up a cpd breeding tank!

5.5 G bare bottom marineland
archae 27w light
Java Moss
Seeded sponge filter (seeded for 2 months-1.5 months)

1 male
3 females

Tropical granules
frozen cyclops
frozen bloodworms
hikari first bites
brine shrimp that i have to start hatching soon
hikari micro pellets

Any suggestions? its my first time trying to breed. is there a specific age the fish start breeding? because i can see one of the females is smaller of the two

So far i've fed hikari micro pellets which theyve seem to ignore, they sank down to the bottom of the tank by the sponge filter and i thought they were eggs until i remembered i'd fed them the micro pellets .
today i put in cyclops, one of the fish would suck it in, seem to chew and then spit it out, others didnt really see the food. sigh. i hope they do start breeding though!
