Fauna for roughly 2 gallon nano?

The title is highly descriptive! What do you think I could put in a (most likely unheated) nano tank of 2 gallons? More specifically, it's a medium sized kritter keeper - I would like to be able to bring it with me to and from work. Of course, if that's a bad idea, I could just bring it to work on the first day of work and bring it back on the last.

All that's come to mind that would definitely work are shrimp, but does anyone have any other ideas?

floaters are always a good option, most mosses. just think low light, no co2, and no ferts (im assuming that'll be the conditions)

Thank you for the valid suggestions, but I had asked about fauna, not flora...

Shrimp are always fun and hardy, especially if you get the neos. Least killies are great for that as well, actually they may be your best bet at a fish! I would suggest endlers but they really do better in warmer water. I'm not sure on this, others would have to chime in, but a CPO would be cool as well! That's all I've got

Thank you for all the replies. I had also considered pygmy killies and maybe pygmy sunfish (the former are tiny, 1 inch, very slender yellow killifish from the southern US - I think most of us know what pygmy sunfish are).
