what fish can be in a 5.5 gallon?

I am curious what fish can go in a 5.5 gallon tank. Please tell me every one that is possible. I don't want a betta. I have one already.

Dwarf puffers, micro fish (sparkling gouramis, micro rasboras, etc.), endler's livebearers, some of the annual killies, possibly pygmy cories if it's got a big swim room capacity.

Not just annual killies. Pygmy and least killies work just fine, as well as pygmy sunfishes.

My tank is taller... so the cories are probably not an option. By annual sillies, do you mean least or pygmy killies? How many micro rasboras could I put in there? Or how many sparkling gouramis?

I really like the annual killies. How many could I put in there?
also, what do they eat? Would what I have be fine? I have fish food flakes, algae wafers, freeze dried blood worms, freeze dried brine shrimp, and freeze dried krill.
