Give them some live food why not let them into the big tank in the picture they are most likely already pregnant separating the fry or putting hiding places in the tanks they make food just for fry.

With that many males and only two females, the girls are going to get harassed to death. I'd suggest you take the females back and keep only males. For livebearers like guppies, you always want a ratio of 1 male for every 2 females at the least but the more females the better.
