5 Gallon Tank Tank Mates for 1 Female Gardneri Kilifish in a 5 Gallon Planted Tank?

So, my previous set up was a male and female gardneri and a mystery snail. That turned into 3 kilifish and a mystery snail after they bred. About a year has passed. Recently the female kilifish and the mystery snail died of what I think was old age, so I'm left with a juvenile female kilifish and a male kilifish who looks healthy but is slowing down and I think he's on his way out soon too.

I was thinking I'd add a nerite snail, but it would be nice to have at least one more fish in there. I don't want to get kilifish again. The male kilifish's aggression and their short lifespan has been a bit of a bummer.

I know I'm pretty limited on space, but do you have any ideas for a tank mate for my female gadrneri kilifish?
