So my aqua tank 25l is empty now after platy have moved out.
I was thinking to put there a betta, only one so he got nice playground. I have ciano cf40 filter for it. And built in light - nothing fancy. Would it be enough for some real plants? I was thinking half of tank as a carpet, half with gravel. Trio barrel ornament. Can I put anything with betta? Not taking fish wise but shrimp or snail or smth like that?

He will need a heater either in the tank or a mat which is made for a small tank.  A 6 gallon tank is too small for shrimp but a snail might work.  It depends on the adult size of the snail.

When in doubt, do a water change.

I keep my Betta with 5 cherry shrimps in a 5 gallon fish tank and they work well
