Fluval Edge 6 Gal tank for Xmas gift. What to put in it?

So, my dad fell in love with the Fluval Edge tank this summer. I've decided to get it for him for xmas. It's 6 gallons. What do you think I can put in it? I don't think he wants a betta. He likes glowlight tetra, but I feel like tetra are too active for a 6 gallon tank. I was thinking guppies. Do they fight if there are a few males in a tank? And for people who have had this tank, is it horrible to clean? My dad just wanted a live plant and a piece of driftwood. So, it wouldn't be completely filled with deco.

Any other ideas would be appreciated

i dont own one, but i really want one. I think 3-4 glow-lites would be fine. for a 6g. I believe these tanks are harder to clean since the opening is a small one, but fluval sells special gravel vacs for it as well as nets and other tools to make maintaining the tank easier. Having plants will also reduce the amount of work you need to do as they really help with the biological filtration.
