Stocking for a 20 gallon

Would 6 cory cats, 6 zebra danios and 5-10 ghost shrimp be appropriate for a 20 gallon tank?

Thanks!

Than i wouldnt do a school of cories. Unless you want to do a dwarf species. The danios and ghosts you can do. Will the tank be planted?

You could, but IMO a dwarf variety will be much better. Make sure you are going to do sand, or a sand gravel mixture.
So you could do;
6-8 zebra danios (look into the glowlight danios, a lot cooler)
10-15 ghost shrimp
6 pandas OR 15 of the dwarf variety
And maybe a betta or something as a centerpiece fish
