My goodwill tank!

So, a couple days ago we went into goodwill and I saw this hexagonal tank with gravel, filter, light, heater, fake plants, etc. It was 12 dollars, so I bought it. It was a little brown, but some hot water and scrubbing cleaned it up nicely. I put Lavian in my 10 gallon community, which is now overstocked atm. In the future, would I be able to transfer either the ghost shrimps or my 2 adfs from my 10 gallon to this 5 gallon?

I have my other betta, who still has NO name, in here. I know I didn't cycle, but I put some gravel from my 10 gallon in here, and will be doing partial water changes every 2-3 days for a few weeks, and will eventually stick with weekly water changes.

Anyway, here it is. I will be putting live plants in eventually, but I can't afford it right now, so I just took all my old silk plants and stuck them in there.

ANYWAY.....Here is the tank I got :) It will be the last tank I will get. I'm going to stick with my 10 gallon community, and this 5 gallon betta tank. No more. Sorry for the long post, lol.
If you have any name suggestions, please let me know. I can't find the right name for this guy!

Beautiful tank, I love the way you decorated it, and your new boy is pretty :)

DD :Drax's coloration and tail type are rather common, there are lots of mulit colored vt's out there, and while at first glance some might seem similar to each other, in reality, they're all really different in personality (and outside)
