Need some advice

I have a 1.5 gallon tank with some java moss in it. My question is what kind and how many fish and shrimp can I put in it? Please let me know

+1. Do a planted tank and get some Red Cherry Shrimp. That would look pretty cool. I've been wanting to do something similar, since my 30G stand can perfectly fit a 2.5G.

Why not add 6-10 hets? Very small livebearer and not real prolific. They would go great with about 20 rcs's.

Ah, I do now....keep in mind I had to google "het livebearer" to get anything that didn't involve computer systems or something.

My brain wasn't functioning well last night, I guess. Do they actually get up to one inch or no?

Ah, a blond moment. I understand those, living with one. An inch, maybe. Another choice if fish would be a group of Celestial Pearl Danios. Another small fish.
