Shrimp, bettas, cories, all in a 30 gal?

I want stock a 30 gallon with a betta, some ghost shrimp, and a few cories. Would that work? I want to plant it,too. Heavily for the shrimp. Would that work? Also, my mom is allergic to shrimp she doesnt mess with the tanks, would they hurt her? Shes like go-to-the-hospital-and-stay-for-a-week-in-ICU allergic.

I was wondering the information as that mix of fish is compatible..... If you choose the right specific species. but We cant go into specifics and approve that mix unless we know that information.

also

will it lightly, moderately or heavily planted with fake or live plants?

will be it cycled. if so, how do you plan on cycling it?

Is she allergic to eating shellfish, touching them or breathing the air around them?
As long as she doesn't touch any of your equipment she should be fine.
If she can't breathe the air around them kind of allergy.. I'd probably back off the shrimp, for your mom's safety, which is clearly the most important thing. Get some snails or something instead.
Other than that, sounds like a pretty lightly stocked tank to me. :D

Okay, some usually adaptable species that I would recommend are

Bronze Corydoras
Pygmy Corydoras
Endlers livebearers
Wild strain guppies
Cardinal tetras
Neon tetras
Ember tetras
Harlequin rasboras
Glowlight rasboras
Scissor tail rasboras

+1

If you do cories, shrimpis/snails that would be very lightly stocked. :) You could add some middle swimmers like the ones Mo has listed (other than the cories).
