    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.

    The mods have a stocking list for 5 gallon aquariums. Since this is a 7.5 gall9n, check out that list

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

    Stocking List For 5 Gallon Nano Aquariums

    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
