Is there any small furry animal I can keep in a 5.5 gallon tank?

I’ve done my fair research of fish that can live in a 5.5 gal tank but is there any type of furry animal I can keep in one?

    I would not. Even if you get a hamster or mouse, the smallest tank would be a 10 gallon. Only ONE male Betta fish can live in a 5.5 gallon tank with no other fish.

    No. That is way too small for ANY mammal. You have some options with smaller reptiles and creepy crawlies, but absolutely no mammals. -Vet tech

    Mice, rats, a hamster, maybe a guinea pig.
