Suitable brackfish species for a 5 gal aquarium

I have a 5 gallon aquarium that I'm looking to stock with fish that thrive in brackfish water. The research I've done on species so far result in mostly the dwarf puffer with snails and ghost shrimp. Is there anything ends I could do because I would like to try and have more than one fish in my tank?

Those are about the only things you could put in there, you could get a 10 gallon and have another puffer maybe, that about it

Mollies get 2.5 -3 inches, they require a minimum of 10 gallons

Bumble bee gobies would be the best thing as they do better in brackish water, don;t get very large and do best in a tank by themselves. If it's only a 5 gal, that would be my choice

The dwarf puffers are not brackish fish and will not thrive.
