Hmmm, so many questions to ask first:
1) what is a muli? Do you mean a "multie" as in neolamprologus multifasciatus?
2.) what are the parameters of the tank? Ph, hardness, etc.
3.) what is the filtration
4.) what is the tank setup like (a full tank shot would be good)
5.) what are the tank mates (if any)

Let's start with those questions, the last being the most important in deciding IMO

The levels will be good by the time I get the fish im thinking 2 male maybe 5 female give or take in both numbers and it will only have guppies (if they don't get eaten) here's a pic (it's pretty bare but it will have the fake stuff gone and I will be adding sand and some shells for the fry) and there the shell dweller cichlids

That tank would need a big change: switch to sand, remove all the fake stuff( I say replace with holey rock), obviously add shells (more important for the adults than just fry actually) and no to the guppies. They will slowly be bullied to death, mine torture ghost shrimp so they no longer have any go into their tank

A bare tank is better, mine has 2 pieces of holey rock and about 12-13 shells, and a few anubias weaves into the holey rock. They love to dig, so they rearrange the tank anyways

I'd also love to see it. I had plans to set up a Multie tank at work but I am suppose to keep the tank size down around a 5.5g.
