Cool Favorite nano critters

what are your favorite nano fish/creatures that are relatively peaceful?

I set up a new 5gal iwagumi and just added 8 blue rasbora's and 5 ghost shrimp and theyre doing just fine.

Any small shrimp. I like RCS but other than ghost shrimp that is the only type I have kept.

Sparkling gouramis, any microrasbora, microdevario kubotai, those are my favorites (:
Some other tiny fish are ember tetra, celestial pearl danio, scarlet badis (may be aggressive towards shrimp but mine isn't), pseudomugil gertrudae, Endlers livebearers (the males), pygmy cories.
