You're correct in that almost all fishes' requirements are for something with a 'footprint' (and thus swimming length) of a certain size, the minimum for some small fish (e.g. small tetra species) being 60x30cm due in part to such fishes' requirements of being kept in shoals. [ You'll see here that the same minimum footprint requirement applies to platies https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/modules/ ... sheet.php?caresheetID=202 - and note that, even if you did have a suitable tank size, even one female in the presence of a male would result in you soon being over-run with fish as they can store fish sperm and continue to reproduce for 6 months post-contact with the male.]
However, one option for you and your 60L biorb tank might be a single male betta / Siamese fighter fish https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/modules/ ... esheet.php?caresheetID=82 as the need for swimming length is less important.
