It could work if you watched the water quality well, but there are 2 issues with the idea.
The first is the obvious, it is abit on the crowded side, but being a planted tank and the fact that bettas and ADFs aren't all that hard on the bio-load it can work (so long as maintanence is strictly kept up with). You would need to make sure that you siphon part of the tank at least once a month, but twice is better. Don't go overboard with gravel vacuuming or you risk sending the tank into a mini-cycle. Just make sure you test the water frequently.
The next thing is the issue of feeding. Corydoras are very, very smart. They can find food very quickly. ADFs, however, are not very good at finding food as you probably are aware, so you would need to be making sure that your ADF is eating.
So keep in mind, it can work, but you need to be careful, test frequently at first, and keep up with the water changes.
