You could put some schooling fish in there such as tetras and dwarf cories. Some shrimp and plants. Guppies.

Finding a stock for a Coldwater 13 gallon (50L is roughly 13.2 US gallons) can be a bit harder to find apposed to starting a tropical tank. Have you looked into barbs? Some of them can be a coldwater fish.
