Suggested fish for a 5 gallon tank with a PH of 8.2-8.4?
Really the only fish suitable for a tank that size regardless of pH is a Betta. Shrimp and Snails are also an option.
I've heard of people doing Rasboras, especially Chili's in a 5 gallon, granted I don't know the parameters of those tanks but it still could be an option
There is a thread available for 5 gallons

I'd just a do a betta.
I've heard of people keeping least killifish in a 5, but bettas are really nice too. They have amazing personalities
