I can see where you're coming from on the shrimp. Just trying to think of some fish that can live in the 5.5 gal
size long term besides the Goldfish and Betta. There was some dwarf chiclid I think that could, might do that... Then again my girl might just want one running tank till we're settled into a house....
I have seen the bubble curtains in a few tanks.... it would definitely resemble a "Nemo" tank if you put it behind a red lit volcano.
Sand can be difficult in a freshwater tank... particularly when you end up moving the sand around...it can get aggravating because any movement while cause a bit of a sandstorm and you have to wait a while until it settles again to be able to see anything. Plus i dont think you can use a gravel siphhon so cleaning out fish poop may be difficult.
Not sure what to suggest with regards to the small fish... maybe some neons? They are small and do well in pairs or small groups.
