stocking ideas for a 5.5 gallon tank

I have this 5.5 gallon tank which is empty collecting dust so I've decided to use it, so what could i stock this with.I was thinking I could have maybe 5-6 guppies in it

No, but endler's livebearers are similar looking and stay small. You could do around four or five of them in there.

A couple of guppies would be fine, I would probably only put 3 or 4 males in there though. Endlers are a bit smaller but male guppies are pretty small also, the tail just makes them look a lot bigger than they are.

I wouldn't put any females of either in there.

Usually I'd be against it because they're so similar looking and bettas can attack them because they'll mistake them for males, especially in that size tank.
