Get a male and 2-3 females. that's my tip, because any male will harrass any unwilling females, and if that aggression is spread out among multiple females,they will be less stressed.

I have a male and three females. Right now I'm just wondering if i need to isolate them or if i can leave them in the tank with the rest of my fish.

anyways you should give youre cichlids an enviorment thats close to their natural habitats cleanwater,and water changes help out alot.things that are a must have for successful breeding are
1.plenty of space
2. regular water changes...the cichlids have a rainy season that you should try to copy.do large water changes each day dropping the temp by 5 degrees.find out more about youre fish.find out if they live in hard or soft water this will help as well(you could find out youre water ph with a test kit that some stores offer DO NOT USE THE STRIPS THEY SUCK! always go with the chemical test they will give you a very good reading )one more thing get rift lake salt mix made for this purpose...some fish are a bit harder to breed.thats why you should try to provide them with the closeest thing you can get to natural.hope this helps

This is just me saying
