New Aquarium

Hey guys, I've got an empty 5 gal and I'd love to do something other than a little shrimp / snail tank. Does anybody have suggestions on a possible fish or a possible school of nano fish that could fit in there?

I cant think of a fish that would do good in a 5 gallon tank. Maybe a invert like a shrimp or a crab.

Someone suggested 4 dwarf seahorses. So there are some. I want something other than shrimp! Lol. I appreciate your input though.

I know there's a long list of fish that don't get bigger than an inch. But are they 5 gallon suitable?

nope if I wanted freshwater ideas id have posted this elsewhere. But I appreciate all ideas any more? I know that there's a number of little gobies thatonly get 1 inch or even .75 inches. Would that work or are they too active? Or would they just be unhappy on their own?

Seahorses are not for the beginning SW aquarist to care for. I advise against them

There are some fish I could suggest, but only after this moves forward and get stable and stays that way.

Maybe some sexy anemone shrimp?
