That was some project you took on for sure. But I think anything that calls for living things in it should be considered first as to how many gallons is required for it to have a life instead of making something and then trying to make a living thing fit into that space.
Fish are only shipped in Walmart dixie cups. That is not their permanent home. They come from a home shown below.

Thats a cool lookin beta fish farm, but i understand about the living conditions of fish and dont want to harm them... im a marine biologist so i know a thing or 2 :) but not big into fresh water

The same thing applies really. Fish need enough space for them to move around and enough water volume so that dissolved waste does not build up very quickly

That's not a fish farm but their natural environment. It ways amazes me that people think it's fine for them to come from this environment and then think they are blissfully happy in a bowl of water.....AND then want to add a bunch of "friends" for them to share that tiny space with.
It always gives me a "roll my eyes moment." LOL
I can't think of anything for your space but perhaps an apple snail and not sure even that would be approperate. Three shrimp would turn into 30 so I don't even find them suitable.
Just my nickles worth here.
