Things to do with old tank?

I have an old 5L (1.3 gallon) tank and I'm not sure what to do with it, any ideas?

I have a heater and and a plastic plant for it, but no substrate or filter. It's a glass tank with a lid. I *MIGHT* need it for my betta in May next year if I can't find a house sitter.. we are going away for a month so I may be sending him to a friends house for the month. As mentioned there is no filter but she knows about water changes etc. If it comes to this I plan on putting some of his current tank water in there and just getting her to keep him warm, clean and fed. Once I get back I don't know what to do with the tank.

I'm not really sure what you can keep in a tank this small as it would be impossible to cycle properly... Maybe I could use it for frogs or a terrarium?
