I would say none, but you may get away with a pair (Male and female) of a dwarf species with no other fish, if you can keep high water quality.

2 Apistogramma Borelli - a pair. They are not very active fish, the females hang close to their caves. They require clean moderately soft water and temps in the upper 70's.

You could also have say 2-3 shellies if your water is hard. I don't recommend any others...
