How is this for bio-load?

3 Yo-yo loach
7-8 Neon tetras
6-7 Rasboras

Also can i put any shrimps or will any of the above eat the shrimp or vice versa?

It all depends on what species of shrimp you are planning to get. Some shrimp get fairly large and will attack the fish. I don't think you need to worry about the fish attacking the shrimp. As far as the bioload goes, you're fine. My girlfriend has a 10 gallon tank with a shoal of cories, 8 neons, and 2 clown plecos and the water remains crystal clear and the test kit readings are right where they should be. With your 30 gallon, you'll have more than enough room to house those fish and not that much of a bioload.

Looks fine. Shouldnt have any problems at all adding some shrimp either. Hope you dont want any snails though, as loaches are voracious snail eaters for the most part. This may be a good thing depending on how you feel about snails. You should even have room for a few extra fish in the future should you find something you really want.

Just make sure you either cycle the tank 1st, or add 2 fish/2 weeks.
