Help with cycling and stocking a 3 gallon aquarium

I gave my small tank to my nephew and need some advice to offer him as far as his fish options. I know about Bettas and feel fine about recommending them.
If he wants more than one fish, then I'm not sure what to tell him. If hr wants a pair or a group of 3 very small fish then would he start with just one for the cycling? How would only one of a group of 3 do alone? What about glofish?
Could you offer me a couple of scenarios for me to suggest to him?

A Betta or Shrimp is the only thing I would put in a 3 gallon tank.

I agree a 3 gallon is way to small for any other fish.
