I would say 15 max, you will need to get it cycled first and be it it's small pick the right kind of plants for your lighting and that grow slower, I would say stick to mosses

It's small so I would say to get a little cholla log, moss it, anchor a anubia to it or a lace java and call it a day. Maybe something like a marimo. There's not much room to play around but that's enough plants to be attractive and have something for the shrimp to hide in.

15? :O I have one shrimp in my 1 gallon lol. Put some java ferns they stay pretty small if there's not much light. They seems to grow no matter what. I have a tank in a north facing room with nothing but ambient light. It's not even near a window and they still grew and multiplied, very slowly but surely.
