Need some ideas for 16g Bowfront

Well this tank started as a freshwater Betta tank with a few Otos and a school of corys. Then I decided to go saltwater with it and got a Clown and Goby. They are now in my 20 long reef setup and I filled this thing back up with freshwater and threw in some stuff I had laying around. It looks ok
Water is cloudy because I was lazy and have grown tired of rinsing play sand 100 times.

I am having a really hard time deciding what to put in this thing. I would like to get something kind of unique which is hard because I have 5 other tanks and most of the fish that I really like. Was thinking about going brackish with a couple mollies and bumblebee goby. Maybe a single convict or firemouth. Im tempted to just fill it back up with salt and get a par38 and fill it with shrooms and zoas. I dunno guys give me some suggestions. Things I don't want: Barbs, Tetras, Platies, Guppies, Minnows, Shelldwellers(actually what I really want but no store within 50 miles of me has them and I refuse to pay $50 for shipping)

How about a heavily planted (real plants) dwarf puffer tank? You could probably manage three in there.

Hmm I do have a Co2 kit that I'm not using. I thought about puffers actually but read a lot of conflicting info with some saying you needed 15g per fish.

Dwarf puffers max out at around an inch. As long as you have a lot of plants and keep up with PWCs most say about 5 gal per DP is enough.

A single peacock eel would be a suitable and interactive option for the tank.
