If you dont plan on having anything living in the tank then why filter it at all???
I have a 1.75 gal without filtration or co2 and with minimum light and it thrives (has RCS in it too)
You can grow plants in any container. I cut off 2 liter pop bottle tops and put some substrate in them and grow plants emersed.
For substrate I would have at least one inch if not 1.5. And ghost shrimp are cheap so why not throw a few in.
