I would get a few neon tetras, they are colorful and energetic. Maybe a pair of platys? Any of the live bearers are hard to kill sooooo can't go wrong there.

I would go with some tetras then, they will school together. I would get 6-9. I know a 5g tank is small but it should be fine so long as you keep the tank running, filtered, and aerated.

You could do that, just make sure you switch it to the bigger tank before it gets to big... You should get the electric blue jack dempseys.

Won't it be rather cramped with you and the wife in a 55 gallon tank?
