I agree with bruins! Get some kind of snail... even get an assasin or two, and toss a snail from another tank every few days...you could even do a few small shrimp with them

as for fish options there are a few that can work. a pair of pygmy killie fish or a pair of pygmy sunfish would work in that tank, but the hard part is keeping water parameters stable.

I would probably try a small heater for that size tank shouldn't be too incredibly expensive. IMO most critters be it fish or invertebrates probably do better with a little heat.
