Don't get neon tetras, but you can get other types.
And cories are a schooling species so you would have to get 3+ for them to live happily.
And honestly, you could only pull off one species of 6 and a few shrimp in a tank that small.
I'd go with 6 danios or You could get 8 dwarf cories or 4-5 regular sized cories like peppered or albino. I'm partial to pandas!
Cories would probably be the best choice. But if you are getting shrimp too you'll probably want to add some mid-level swimmers so danios or tetras (not neon) would be better
