There is nothing too small in the SW world. Heck, go look at Kells and Dallop's picos. Two of some thousand examples.

I've seen a lot of 3g picos. Most of them are purely coral and invertebrates but it can be done and is done quite often.

You could do a red cherry shrimp tank. I don't really put fish in less than 5 gallons because I just think they need at least that much space to swim. JMO.

A mini reef would be REALLY cool, but could be difficult. If you're up for the challenge it would be awesome :)

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

Corals and inverts would be cool.

These size of tanks are really suitable for things like holding tanks to transport or to breed or to hold small fry to prevent them from being eaten. Unless you want it for like a beta or maybe ghost shrimp. I know its not what you want to hear but etleast you can do with it what you want. Dwarf gouramis are very active swimmers and although at times semi aggresive they thrive in a community tank I think.
