It really depends on the fish. It's really hard to maintain specific gravity and sometimes temperature in a small tank, and you're going to be limited in your selection of fish. The only ones I can think of in a tank that small are going to be something like clown gobies.
I think you would be more successful if you went for a 20 to 30 gallon tank. Look on liveaquaria.com and see if you're even interested in any of the fish suitable in a small tank. Other than that, you could do something with shrimp and / or a porcelain crab.
