IMO-that is just fine along with one Betta, provided that the needed water changes are being made.

I agree. It sounds good to me. Just make sure you do water changes.

Yes that's fine too. Ghost shrimp have next to no bioload.

That's fine.. but is your tank cycled? Inverts (snails and shrimp) are very sensitive to water quality, the shrimp especially.

what 1f2f said. =]

If you have a 5 gallon you can have up to 5 shrimp, one snail, and a betta and still be good. =]
