    Perhaps some cherry shrimp, or a single betta. Not much else will do well in that small a tank. With it being so small you would have to do more frequent maintenance seeing as how it would be so easy for things to fluctuate.

    shrimp colony
    betta
    shrimp
    snail

    You sure it's 7.5 G? Sounds about 5G without looking at a calculator.

    I would say it's bigger than 5.5 bc mine is smaller than those dimensions

    30x30x30 = 27,000
    The tank is 27 liters, about 7.g5 gal. I have actually thought about buying one of those for a little furniture I have in the house. I was planning to stock it with shrimp.

    The dimensions aren't great for fish. I'd recommend something a bit longer for a betta.

    Plants definitely. Anacharis, anubias, maybe a sword, ludwigia - more plants means more fish as they'll eat the waste produced. Also maybe some emersed growth on the top as it's a smaller tank. Anubias and bucephalandra are good for this. Also pothos if you're on a budget. Then a small school of fish (neons or CPD's)or a large group of neocardinia of your choice. And for the centerpiece a big male betta - again your choice but shop around there's so many beautiful ones
