Bettas & Ghost Shrimp?

Hello!
Just wondering, can bettas be kept with ghost shrimp? I've heard that people keep them together...
Thanks! :)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I think about it every night and day!

I'd be wary. My betta and my friend's betta have both killed all the ghost shrimp in with them.

well the ghost shrimp are hard to notice for fish so even if he did want to eat them, he probably wouldnt find them so im pretty sure its ok, plus i dont think bettas mouths are big enough

I've always kept ghost shrimp with bettas to clean up uneaten food and they'll be fine.

My Ghost Shrimp has been doing just fine with my male Betta. It's kind of funny, it's almost as though they hang out together. The floating plant my Betta usually stays around has now become the prime chill spot for my shrimp. The Betta actually just stares at him for minutes at a time, and when he gets too close, the ghost shrimp touches him with his antennae and then the Betta moves back. It's quite entertaining.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
