Sand+rocks scape ?

I love Mbuna biotope. BUT, there is a problem now, I can't have a big tank for a suitable Mbuna community (at least needs 40-50g) because I don't have any more space in my small house.

So I thought since i got 1 more 5.5g tank, i thought to make it a miniature version of a mbuna biotope, with sands and rocks only (or maybe with some anubias/java ferns).

But, what fish would be awesome in that small 5.5g?

I'm not sure but I think that you could fit a pair of shell dwelling cichlids in there. It would be tight but it might be possible. I say these because it seems as though you want cichlids and these are a tiny species of cichlid.

Perhaps the shelldwellers. Or you could get a dwarf puffer! Or a pair of sparkling gourami's.

Lamprologus multifasciatus!!! Epic fish. Get six and let them grow up together, and keep a pair.
