The only other thing I'd put in would be a single dwarf puffer fish. :)

Shrimps, Crabs and snails are about the only thing other than a Betta.

I'm wondering, too.
Most crabs like fiddlers and red claws need large amounts of room in order to set up a proper brackish environment. 10 gallons would be better for a lone crab, 15 for a pair.
In a 5 gallon you could look into Thai micro crabs, totally freshwater. However their lifespan is a little over a year and they've yet to be bred in captivity, so you'd have to buy more every year. xD

It says on websites around that fiddlers and red claws can be kept in 5 gallons (2 of them). They need brackish water though.

That is what I was going to suggest, they are great little crabs though.

You need a fair amount of room for them though by the time you create their environment there is not a whole lot of room left in the tank.
