It would really depend on the species. They need about 6x6" of floor space of the tank each for their territory. Now, with some of them, that means you get a single, monogamous pair in a 10 gallon, for others that means you get one male and 2 or three females. I think Multis are one of the harem breeding ones. Seriously, google is your friend here. I did the research on it a couple of months ago, and then let it slide out of my head when I didn't have a free tank for it. It should take you all of 2 to 4 hours to get familiar with what you need for shellies, and maybe another 2 to 4 to figure out exactly how to get the water parameters what they need to be. Now, because of forum rules, I can't link ore even recommend that you visit the forum that's dedicated to these fish, but I would be remiss if I didn't say that it's on the first page of google when you search shell dwellers.
