You really cant do much with a 5 gallon tank.
a trio of male guppies
one male betta are generally the cheapest and easiest options.
You'll wanna make sure you've got a heater to prevent temp fluctuations.
Or, you could do what a lot of people try, just take a 10 (also rather limited in stocking) and say it's a 5 .
Make sure that wherever the tank is, it's not easily accessed by others that might be overfeeding it, or adding the wrong things to it.

I'd look into inverts. Shrimps could be cool. A 5 gal could work well as a nano-planted with a small shrimp species. It's not so good for most fish.
The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.

I have Cherry Red Shrimps and they are easy to look after, and once they start breeding you will see plenty of activity.
The tank must be planted with live plants.
What type of filtration system do you have or think of getting.

A 5 gallon tank can be turned into the most amazing tank.
Stick with very very small fish such as neon or cardinal
tetras, or some enders, and/or some cherry shrimp to add
movement and contrasting color to the green's of the

With the small tanks, you don't need to invest a fortune

OMG! I saw dwarf puffers today! They were the cutest little things! And they were in with dwarf african frogs, so there's an idea for you.
