Breeding species in a ten gallon?

Someone just gave me a spare ten gallon. I am wishing to breed a species of fish in it. Open to any suggestions but, would prefer if the adult forms of the fish can get along. I am considering any type of Lamprologus ocellatus any info on those would be appreciated. To me, it doesn't really matter how hard it is to breed that type of fish but, preferably something intermediate leveled for breeding.

The occellatus would work, maybe some some of egg scatterer would work too.

Neolamprologus Multifasciatus would be an option. They're colonial so they practically raise themselves and their population will just keep growing. I've got somewhere around 30 in a 20 gallon, a year after starting with 14. And 3 simultaneous spawns right now!

Won't the adults fight though? Is there a method for breeding so that I will only have one pair and a bunch of fry or a way to keep a colony from fighting?

I can't find any peacock gudgeons near me. Do you know anyone that can ship to Canada?

Lamprologus ocellatus can work, I have a pair in a ten gallon right now, been in there for about a year, and they are constantly breeding. I have gold ocellatus, and they are very fun to watch, they will even attack the siphon when I do water changes, it's fun to watch. Just make sure you do weekly water changes. But make sure the new water is very close to the temperature of the new water, or else you could shock the fish. As lake tanganyika is very stable and any change in temp that happens to fast and is too big will stress the fish and can kill them

Would Multies work better than ocellatus?
