The only thing I can think of is a Betta male or female. With the size of your tank, your very limited. Guppy need atleast a ten gal, Platy also and Common Molly and Swordtail do best in atleast a 20gal. If your talking Sailfin Molly, then you need atleast a 30gal. Sorry to break to you.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)
