What kind of fish to put in a 5 gallon aquarium

What kind of fish would be good to put in a 5 gallon aquarium? Are there any fish that would be ok with 2 otocincluses that are already in there?

I have a 6G housing a betta and otos. I added the betta AFTER the otos. They are just fine with each others company.

I agree with kymmie, a beta would be a good fit for a 5G

a few neon tetras maybe some ghost shrimp and snails. You could add ONE and only ONE dwarf puffer, or like other people have suggested a betta. some guppies would be nice in there, and would get along perfectly with tetras and ghost shrimp and snails, but if it isn't heavily planted I would say only 2 or three guppies and 10 shrimp.

I ended up going with a crown-fin betta to go with the 2 oto's. Thanks for your input.
