What to do with a 5 gallon?

So, my five gallon recently opened up, and is now free to new ideas, which I have none of right now. I need suggestions, and any would be welcome.
One idea I had was to have a shallow white sand substrate with a couple medium rocks, and no plants besides some floating plants (maybe) and have like 6 white cloud minnows.
Another idea I had was to a java moss only tank, with white cloud minnows.
Or, try doing one with a giant stack of golf ball sized rocks with moss or something stuffed in between them, with red cherry shrimp.

So, a recurring theme is white cloud minnows, which I found out one of my LFS sells, so I kind of wanted something revolving around them, but I think a 5 gallon may be too small (I like empty looking tanks), I have some ideas but now need moar! I have an AquaClear Mini (20) as filtration, I also have a heater, but doubt I will need it since it's so hot right now.
