fish for 1.5 gallon?

Hey i was wondering if anyone knew of any fish i could keep in a 1.5 gallon tank? I really just really wanted to create a mini ecosystem and only have a couple of aquatic plants but then i felt like i should get a fish also. Anyone have any ideas?

Agreed. Fish? There isn't anything else that should stay in there long-term, not even bettas. Shrimps are about the only thing I can suggest. They will proliferate in no time. I suggest upgrading the tank to a 15g instead.

As much as I hate it, I admit the snails are poo machines so a gallon won't do wonders at all with the exception of pond snails, Malaysian trumpets and ramshorns but let's face it...I don't suggest tacky pests. Maybe the red, blue and ivory ramshorns for once...certainly not the Marisa cornuarietis as most places ban their interstate shipments.

1 pea/dwarf puffer or 1 betta makes a good addition to a 5 gallon.

bettas dont like much flow, either sand or gravel and either live or silk plants. plastic plants or sharp edge decorations and rip their fins. dwarf puffers are "cute" but need to be fed live food.
you could also do live plants and cherry red shrimp, i wouldnt do this with the betta or puffer though, because they would get eaten.
