What fish could I get?

Hi guys,
I have a spare 25 liter tank lying around and was wondering what I could get for it. I would like a species tank because I already have a community tank. I know a frogfish would get WAY too big but I would like something a bit like that. I don't really want a shrimp tank, just something unusual.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,Eddy

Dwarf Lion fish?
Clown trigger?
Dog faced puffer... They are gorgeous fish mines got excited and swam up and down like a wee puppy.

25 litres is only like 6 gallons isnt it? Theres not much that can go in such a small tank. Maybe some shrimp, hermits other inverts....

If it were my tank and I was absolutely set on using this small tank I would put in a bunch of shrimp. Some peppermints, a fire shrimp, cleaner shrimp maybe some sexy shrimp. Then I would add maybe an emerald crab and/or a porcelain crab. The a couple bright red scarlet hermit crabs.

How about macro algae with dwarf seahorses? I've wanted to do this but never got around to it.

I don't know that much about seahorses but I believe the need a tall tank. ANd live food. Pretty tough to take care of from all I've read

How about small gobies. I had a high fin red banded shrimp goby (sometimes called rose goby) and he was adorable and very small
