some random thoughts:
If they are only 2 they may not be sexually mature, as this happens between 1 and 3.
You may be able to tell better in spring - though obviously in tank with artificial heat and light not necessarily
Females will look fat and full of eggs, males will have breeding tubercules around gill plates
Males will chase
Maybe you have 2 females ...
Have just read in another post - Fishy-Fishy says you can trigger spawning by conditioning with live food and a slightly cooler than usual water change
