I guess I'm most interested in whether this stocking level seems too high or if there are compatibility issues?
Your tap water is probably close to mine, fellow Buckeye. I have found that most fish will adapt. I really don't have any experience with a group of female bettas or fresh water shrimp. Your numbers seem right on. Again, I don't know anything about the shrimps' requirements. I'm assuming they're the same as fish. You might be able to sneak in a small group of Corys. The bettas get their air from the surface, so it's pretty much a matter of how much waste your system can handle.
