I agree on the shrimp thing,
I have a 5G that's only inhabited by 3 ghost shrimp, some snails, and a ton of plants.
No filter is even attached to that tank. The plants do a great job- I'm certain my tank could handle a much larger bioload if I eased into it.
I eventually either want some red cherry shrimp, ghost shrimp, and a school of ember tetras,
a devoted invert tank with about 3-4 diff kinds of shrimp and maybe a CPO :p
Sorry, went off on a rant..
I have a 1 gallon jar thats planted, and I can keep 2 guppies in it without any problems- they seem to stay active. (As long as the container is wide)
Really, you're able to keep this stuff in a 1g? Do you know what your water parameters are? What is your maintenance schedule?
I have always thought that only shrimp are okay in a tank that small...
