A 5 gallon would be good. I would also suggest at keeping the temp from 78 to 84. They are tropical fish and like it warm. If you get a small filter, you will not need a baffle. A Hagen Elite Mini or a Red Sea Nano would be at the top of that list. Also make sure there are hiding places. Plants can accomplish this as can small flower pots put on their sides and half buried. Good luck.
