2.5g Pico Tank

Today I went to petco and got a 2.5gallon fish tank. I currently have no idea what to do with this at the moment. Any suggestions on a super cheap idea of what to do with this would be great (Freshwater or Saltwater). I already have a HOB filter and Plants w/Potting Soil so those don't need to be included in costs.

It's a Standard 2.5g (Also bought some Algae waffers for my Shrimp Bowl)


Any Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Lol I'll keep that in mind, I'm currently using it to hold some trimmings until I can sell them. I was considering shrimps....now I got to decide on either sticking with cherries like my bowl or trying something different.....

You can look at my sig I have my 2.5 fully going and will probably do shrimp but I want to do another 2.5 mini riparim/paludarium so that would also be a cool way to go. Maybe build a tiny background with foam and cement those dont seem to expensive at all.
