Will this be ok for a 29 gallon?

Currently I have 9 Zebra Danios, 5 Red Eye Tetras, 2 Mollies, 3 YoYo Loaches, some ghost shrimp and some snails. I was wondering if it will be ok to transport my Betta in to that tank?

Bettas will be victimized by the possible fin nipping of yoyo loaches, zebra danios and red-eye tetras. Ghost shrimps and other invertebrates will be consumed by your yoyo loaches. Only Pangios will really work on that tank.

Red Eye tetras are notorious fin nippers. Also, yoyos will drive a betta to distraction. Be aware that Yoyos can get 6" long (though they're usually a bit smaller), so you're looking at half or more of your bioload right there with just those three. You might could be alright with what you have there right now, but I wouldn't add anything else.

I've never seen my loaches go after ghost shrimp, but I seldom see any ghost shrimp in my loach tanks (I have 2) about 3 days after putting a dozen in there.
