Pico? Need Options for 2.5 or 5g tank

What are the options for a 2.5 or 5 gallon pico reef? Just curious.

Maybe some shrimp and/or snails. No fish that I am aware of.

Cool. If this turns into a reality I really only want corals and a couple of inverts. I was just wondering if any fish could lead happy, healthy lives in one. Of course, my bettas each get a 5 or 10 gallon. I don't like cramping fish. I think it's mean. Lol. Thanks!

I'm not aware of any fish that are okay in a 5g. Maybe someone will chime in. Corals and shrimp/snails would be fine.

Most shrimp are reef safe, from my experience I have had peppermint shrimp and a cleaner shrimp. Check out liveaquaria.com or reefs2go.com gives you a lot of info on all the different species.

Thanks! I've been wanting some peppermint shrimp but I have an anemone and I've heard they don't mix?
