If you wanted to try something a bit more unique, you could start your own colony of Neolamprologus Multifasciatus - Or Multie - cichlids. There max size is 1.5" for the males, 1.25" for females. They like a high PH of 8-9, and hard water. They're from Lake Tanganyika, and are in the shell-dweller group. I used crushed aragonite sand to buffer my PH, tossed a few shells in with fake plants, and added 4 Multies, within a month or so I had 25 fry, and every few weeks another batch of fry. They care for there young and won't eat the fry, and you can keep them until there about .5 - .75" and bring them in to your LFS for trade. My LFS sells them for 15$, and gives 3$ on trade. Helps pay for the hobby.
Otherwise you could get a small group of pygmy cories (4 most likely for the tank size) and a few tetras of your choosing.
