You could add a few shrimp to your tank. They are fun and peaceful. Maybe some cherry shrimp or bumble bee shrimp... Here are some sites with a few examples. Not sure if you have plants or what you lights are like, but a few plants (low light plants) would help add interest as well.

Apple snails can also make for an interesting addition to some tanks. You can check out www.applesnail.net for more info about them.

60liters is about 20gal, that means basically you're fully stocked, if you have a good filter though and change your water frequently you could add some shrimp.
