I recently added an upside down herb planter I got at Lowe's on clearance, it's the perfect cave for the ocellatas. It has four entrances with awnings :) You can kind of see it in a few of the pictures. They also like the mason jar with the marimo ball in it, and the tiny terra cotta pot stuffed with pellia. Otherwise there are just rocks and plants, mostly low light ones. Lots of java fern, anubias, and mosses and some frogbit. And the remnants of my giant purple dwarf lily; two little baby plants were left behind when I pulled it out. And there are a few unidentified bits that tagged along with shipped plants. I think I might have some form of ludwigia.
The tank is slightly overstocked with the extra female in there, but they're all siblings and they have enough private areas and plant cover that I think they'll do ok in there. If they seem to be getting territorial I'll move one pair out. But they're very relaxed with each other honestly, and the females each prefer one male so it works out well now.
