Help with my 8 gallon biocube

I have a vacant 8 gallon biocube; of course it's really only about 5 gallons of swimming room. I want to set up a pretty tank. And I want to be about to see the fish. I'd consider bettas, but I tried that and he couldn't take the strong current.

So has anyone had experience with this 8 gallon biocube and can offer fish that can take the strong current?

I don't think any other fish could go in something that small, except a pea puffer. But I don't know how they would handle the current.

Actually, there are a number of possibilities. But the filter flow is going to make most of them ill advised. I know nothing of these cubes, is there any way to reduce the filter flow? If we solve this, i can offer suggestions on many suitable fish for a very colourful display.

I agree with Byron - if you can somehow slow down the current, there are a number of small fish that could work in a tank this size, just not too many of them.

A small sponge filter might be an option to reduce flow in the tank. With that said,, Four or five white cloud mountain minnows and a few shrimp could work.
