Hi Arget, thanks for the clarity, as of now I have not not added Ocellatus at all, I will be upgrading my tank to 3ft long in the Oct, then I might think of adding Ocellatus (if they are available with any breeder).
Secondly my tap water is not hard water, having said that the multies which I've in my tank now are from a breeder who who bred these in regular tap water from the same area where I come from. However I presume they need the right water conditions to spawn, so I have got both Seachem Tanganyika Buffer + Seachem Cichlid lake salt. So this time during the water change I will check my water parameters first and based on that will used both of this.
