Any ideas for a 2.5 gallon hex

I have a 2.5 gallon hex tank that I found at the thrift store and would like to turn it into a planted tank. I would love to here any ideas anyone has about stocking, plants , setup ect.

So far my ideas are:

- A barebottom non-planted tank for an african dwarf frog
- A planted tank with snails and shrimp
- A planted tank for one african dwarf frog

I like the snail/shrimp idea!
You could do a nice planted tank with them!

I'd go with the shrimp/ snail tank. IMO, 2.5 is too small for dwarf frogs.
