There is no reason to raise the PH for tank bred Multies. At most I would throw a bag of argonite or crushed coral in your filter. I currently have a multi tank it's a 20H, play sand and a few rocks, about 20 escargot shells, the PH of my water is about 7.6-7.8 and mine breed like crazy. If you are buying adults I would try and get one male and two females, if you are buying juveniles get 6 of them.
You can keep multies in a 10 gallon but it will get cramped quickly. I have only had my multies for about 6-7 months and without me doing anything extra (fry feedings, harvesting fry, etc.) I have about 20 fry ranging from 1/4" to 2/3", if I had been trying to keep the fry alive I would probably have 40-60 fry. They are very hardy fish and a lot of fun to watch.
