Ten months ago I got 3 multies. They have a 32"x12"x16" practically completely to themselves. The male is 1.4", the two females 1". They do not seem to grow anymore and have not spawned yet.
I use tap water: pH about 8.5, GH 13.

These days my online seller offers 1.4" juveniles of Lamprologus ornatipinnis real cheap.
Could I add one male and 2-3 females of these larger growing fish to the 32"x16" setup?
I'd like to see fry of both species.

Thanks in advance for any reaction.

I would not do that. Avoid the experiment of finding out if they will kill each other or mate across species lines. Separate tanks is fine. For me ornatipinnis needed a bit bigger tank than their size implied. Perhaps i just had an aggressive male. But he had two females at the far ends of 55 and them and their fry staying away from the center of the tank.
