Fish for 5 gallon

Are there any fish that can live in a 5 gallon aquarium, preferrably salt water?

Im pretty new at this, and I dont want to manage a whole nano reef yet.

In the tank there it 3 fake pearly colored plants, two large decoration shells, an air bubble wand, a small cave, a tetra whisper filter, an air pump, a thermometer, a heater, and a light.

I dont have any marine salt in there right now, as I can go either way with my aquarium, I would just really prefer salt water.

It is an established tank, and it previously held a 1 inch Green Spotted Puffer in brackish water.

Fish sound at petco would be great suggestions.

Thanks, Kaede. <3

It would almost have to be a fish that does not swim much. Almost like a firefish. You could only have one.

You might be able to get a tiny seahorse or some inverts.

Well if you do PWC weekly then no. If you will forget then yes.
