I would love to be able to get fish from aquabid but due to quarantine laws getting fish shipped from overseas is complicated. I did get a betta from Thailand recently. He was shipped to Aus, then had to go through quarantine in Brisbane, then was picked out by my LFS owner, then transported 1 1/2 hours to my town where I picked him out of a batch of 100 or so.

I'd go with shrimp. You could use the red crystal shrimp or my favorite, halocaridina rubra. It is endemic to Hawaii but some people sell them online. You can ask your Lfs to order them. They are brackish water so you would need to use rocks in the layout.

I'm not exactly sure what shrimp are available in Aus. The ban on exotic shrimp trade was only recently lifted. Due to money constraints the tank probably isn't going to contain anything too rare or expensive. Probably just common cherries.

😊 I am so incredibly broke right now. I have to go searching for some! Lucky I'm an equipment hoarder or this tank may never happen.

My LFS has chocolate, banana, ghost, cherry and crystal shrimp. All but the red cherries are $15-$25 EACH 8-0

Really! That seems like a lot! I got 7 RCS for $10 a few weeks ago. CRS go for $15 or more and the ones with black stripes instead of red go for nearly $30.
