I was thinking a single betta would only be possible but wanting to see other cool ideas that would work?
I'm going to add 2 moss balls and somekind of plant for the middle is the plan and a black or blue background

I have no experience with them, and you'd probably need to do more research to see if this is correct. But I ~think~ sparkling gouramI can be kept in anything above 5 gallons.

Omg I saw the coolest loaches yesterday! If I head to my lfs again today I'll show you them, they're nano loaches and super cute!
My store has a little specialized nano tank section and it's awesome, some fish include the galaxy rasboras, a sparkling gouramI or two would look cool, endlers, chilI rasboras
Shrimps and more shrimps!
Maybe a single cpo or dwarf crayfish
There's also a micro fish and 5 gallon section on the forums somewhere that could help you get ideas of what to stock.

It'd be easier and faster to just take media from your established filter as there really isn't a lot of BB in the substrate.

The established media is large filter pads won't fit in the 6.5gal very small filter

Scissors are a thing

That's average for most aquarium fish to be honest.

Tiger barbs need a 20 gallon minimum, even a single tiger barb can grow to over 3 inches.

I highly suggest a small group of dwarf emerald rasbora:



Colorful, active, and they stay under an inch long.

Just throw something in to root and make ammonia. You could do a colony of heterandria Formosa. There's a ton on aquabid right now.
