I think 3 months is a little young but you'd have to let the breeders on the forum answer and give their expert opinions.

It can be done, if the fish is the right size.
I've personal bred 3 month old female the size of 1.5 in long.
But the Males I tend to hold a little longer cause young male will give u problem from the start like not caring for the nest, eating the fry n egg n they get spoke a lot easier.

Basically what Curly said^

Size matters more than age. If you're worried just wait another month.
Younger females are easier to work with than younger males as they might have issues wrapping if they're too small, or they'll get spooked.
Depends on the individual fish in question.
