Fluval Edge 6 GAL, stocking question...

I am sure this has been asked many times before, and I have searched and searched the Intertubes and cannot seem to find a solid answer. I see plenty of what not to put in a 6gal Edge, but nothing definitive on what to put in.

I have a chance to get a used 6 gal edge on the cheap. It will be planted. But I have no idea what I SHOULD keep in this tank for livestock. I have no experience with shrimp but i have seen that suggested many times.

I do have 5 guppies I could transplant from my 30 gallon, as I have read such a tank is suitable for them.

Just wanted to get some advice from here as well. Thanks!

I have a Fluval 6g as well. My stock plan:
Betta
2 oto
2 nerite
ramshorns

Did you see the Edge mega-thread here? Search through that to see what others have used in their Edge's before.

Shrimp
Celestial pearl danios
Threadfin rainbows
Chela dadibijurio
Pygmy corys
Ottos
White cloud mountain minnows

There are lots of schooling fish under 1.5 inches out there that will work, as well as a number of nice solo fishes like betta, honey gourami, maybe even a dwarf cichlid (ummm, one of the smaller species I would think)

Endlers, guppies (always forget the live bearers)
