Question Need Stocking Ideas for 1.5 gal nano tank

Hi,
If anyone read my last post about building a nano tank, I abandoned that idea and bought a 1.5 gal kit.
I was planning on putting some live rock and maybe a sexy shrimp in it, but I am looking for more stocking ideas. I really would like fish, but I know its probly to small. I have read on other forums that other people keep clownfish or sixline wrass fish, so could I keep one? I know I would need frequent water changes for a fish, and I could do that.

Maybe if you want more color you could pick up a Skunk Cleaner Shrimp or a Fire Shrimp. That may work.

If it's salt, yellow watchman. If it's fresh you could do some cherry shrimp, or endleer livebearer

You are saying that a yellow watchman goby can go in a 1.5 gallon tank? For the sake of the fish I say no way. A watchman goby needs a 30 gallon tank.

Some people keep small gobies in nano tanks. Not sure which type though.

Looking at a trio of sexy shrimp ONLY with a couple zoa and or shroom frags in there.

There isn't a fish small enough that can go into something that small.

you might be able to get away with a trimma goby, they only reach 1 inch in length but even that is pushing it. id stick with sexy shrimp and pom pom crabs
