    You could have some Tropical fish and maybe either specialise in one type or a shoal of smaller fish. or some cold water Fantails.
    Or maybe a small bird.

    rats are great, very interactive and love being with people. All other small rodents can be a bit shy. It cost me about £200 to set up and buy my rats.
