None of them are good. Cherry shrimp would be the ONLY thing I would put in such a tiny container.

I wouldn't even put a Beta in a 1.5 gallon.

Just the shrimp. Or a snail. That's about it.

It is a matter of personal preference and how much work you are willing to do. I personally have all mine in 5 gallons or more.

You could keep one betta in there but that means frequent water changes if you want them to stay healthy. It's pretty near impossible to cycle anything that size and they typically come with a small bulb that won't sustain any live plants.

I would go against any recommendations for a betta, and only put shrimp/snails. What heating are you using?
