2.5 gallon...what to do with it?

So i have this 2.5 gallon meta frame tank.. and ive seen some awesome half water, half land waterfall tanks that are moderatly small but if i was to do something similar in my 2.5g tank what could i even keep in there? Even if i had it filled up all the way, possibly a Betta at most but half way? Any kind of REALLY small newt? or anything? maybe ill just make it a shrimp tank and skip the whole riparium/Terrarium/vivarium idea? Opinions welcome!

why not fill it half way and have some driftwood sticking up and a waterfall and have some shrimp or something?
