Betta. If you're going at least 10 gallons you could do exodon tetras - they school and eat just like piranhas. Or a true leaf fish, Monocirrhus polyacanthus. You can have those in pretty small...

Aquatek sells splitters. I have their six way and it works fine. Definitely not the highest quality needle valves but I've never had an issue with it. Might not be DIY but still not too expensive.
