Planted 3 Gallon Tank

Hi everyone.

So I have this planted 3 gallon tank. But the only inhabitants are 1 Pumpkin shrimp, 1 CRS and 1 CBS and a few Ramshorn snails.

I don't want a Betta in it as I already have a heavily planted 10 gallon with a Betta (Peter) in it.

There are no rasboras at my LFS and I would really appreciate any suggestions... I'm thinking more shrimp but how many would you say would be the max? I've not had luck with breeding shrimp so lets assume that I would like to stock it with the maximum number of shrimp possible. My tank specs are as follows:

Plants: Duckweed, Banana Lily, Pellia & Water lily- the actual pond kind, not the dwarf (I know, I know... Didn't think it would germinate! Lol!)

Lighting: LED 2W, 24.

Filter: 15 GPH

Co2: Liquid Co2

Thanks everyone!

Get more pumpkins! Just add like 10 and let them breed. They generally slow down when the population gets a little too high. You could keep at least 30 shrimps (IMO) in that tank.
How I feel about non-planted aquariums.
