I have a 2 gallon tank, I already have white sand and would like to plant it. Any plant and rocks/driftwood ideas? No co2, and low light tank.
I would like it to be cheep and I will be using cherry shrimps as the tank habitants.

Anubias, Java Ferns, Crypts, mosses, and Bucephalandra would be your best bets. You can go for a bonsai tree look for driftwood, I think that looks cool.

Moss is great, but if you do moss, it'll strangle any other plant you put in. I would use no lights, make it a zero watt tank, just put it by the window. No direct sun. It would kill or bleach your plants and critters. There are many small things tougher than shrimp. Ostracods, daphnia, planaria, rotifers, copepods, snails, Hydra, amphipods, bryzoans, isopods, and many more. You can get them, and plants, from your local pond/lake/river.
2g is actually on the large end of these things. Check out r/jarrariums.

Is vinegar safe for fish? If so what can I use to get rid of this?

The tank in progress, what should I add/change?
Plants: Italian Val, petite anubias, and java fern.
Tank habitats will be 5? Cherry shrimps, 1 guppy, and 1 checkerboard cichlid baby-if grows too big I will move him/her to a 10 gallon.
