While they are considered Nano fish, that tank is too small for both of those species.

I would say the minimum is a 10 gallon. They stay small only 1-1.5” but they still need some room to swim. IMO a 2.5 is in humane.

Shrimp would look great with some live plants
I was thinking that but I’m planning on getting a 10 gallon just for shrimp. It’s a tall tank so not a lot of surface area. Would a betta work?

If it’s a regular 5 gallon tank that is longer than it is taller it can work for a betta. You could even do 1 mystery snail or a couple of nerite snails with it.
I’m going with a betta I think
