Fish type suggestions for nano tank

I am planning on redoing my 5g and want some suggestions for nano fish.
I do NOT want a betta. I've had Boraras maculatus over the past year and loved them but despite good water conditions they are to sensitive and loose one for unknown reasons about once a month. I started with 15 and now only have 2, I'm over having to get them specially ordered in to just have them die.

I want something of similar size but not so sensitive. The tank will be a planted dirt tank and I have very soft water.

You could do shrimp or a pair of pea puffers.

I would love to have shrimp but unfortunately they cannot be imported here as they are on the no import list. New Zealand is strict on what can and can't be imported.

Pygmy sunfish? Those would be great . I feel like there's one species of them cannot be imported.. But not all for some strange reason. They are extremely adorable and they are not sensitive however most likely you will have to feed them live or frozen Daphnia..
