I saw the tank at a local pet shop and it was simply too ludicrously proportioned to pass up. It's turned into a sometimes fun, sometimes frustrating challenge to set up such a small planted tank.
I'll hopefully be adding a few more shrimp in the near future, I only got two to start to make sure I could keep them alive. There's only one nerite in the tank, the other one is an empty shell added for decoration.
