Would like to put small plants that could grow out of the water and either add some shrimp, endlers, or the like. Do you think this would work? If so, any suggestions on the plants?
If you are planning on making a 1 gallon shallow aquarium then fish will not work. Sorry.
You could do a shrimp tank though.
I'm not too good on plants so I can't really help you there.
I recommend doing some of the smaller species of shrimp.
Or you could also possibly do a snail or two but its up to you on what you want.
