I am still learning about the breeding, but you should move them and put up a divider, also they will need very clean water and a good flow of water over them. Also people generally use Methyl Blue, so they don't get fungus.
You will also need to know what you are going to feed them, on person on the forum uses boiled egg yolk. You will maybe need baby Brine Shrimp too. Cover intake filter tube so they don't get sucked up. And or use sponge filter.
this thread is HUGE, but also has great info, and help.
