which beginner fish to put in my new tank?

I was initially going to do goldfish, but have since decided I probably don't have enough space in my tank. My tank is only small, about 25L. What would be a good number of beginner level tropical fish? I like Blue Rams, are they a good idea? And what would look nice to put with them?

Thanks

A Betta even is better in a ten gallon. Their personality really shines.

I would do a shrimp tank, and post a build thread so I have ideas for when I do my own shrimp tank build.

Yeah. Five gallons is the minimum, I was just saying that they do better in bigger tanks.

And shrimp tanks are really cool too. And they like plants. So you could do a planted shrimp tank.
