I would definately do shrimp since it's a small tank. I have Red and yellow cherries in my two small tanks and I love watching them swim around and stuff.

I don't know much about Bamboo Shrimp but reading the profile it sounds like they may get to big for a 2.5 gal. It says min is 10 Gal...

3-5 inches, yup too big. Cherry shrimp get around 1" and are colourful... actually most shrimp are around that size as they are all a dwarf shrimp. Cherries are just one of the easiest to get which also makes them a good low budget shrimp.
