I circled it for you. I never really noticed it before, it may just be a normal thing. Thing 1 certainly is acting normal.

I have an Amano in my 10 gallon and absoluetly love him (or her :D ). Such a safe choice. Since its just one in a 10 gallon, he does eat some algae but doesn't have the great effect on the algae - but he's like a personal housemaid for longer periods of time! They are very peaceful shrimp and I really recommend them! Get along great with the fish! Mine even climbs into the intake tube of the filter part way, and in through the outflow to clean away algae and such inside the filter and on the filter cartridge :D

shrimp and betta

So I have 2 HMPK, 2 crowntails, 1 HM and 1 superdelta.
Most love to snack on the ghost shrimp, but one of crowntail and one HMPK have them as buddies. So my experience is that shimp as companions all depends on the personalities of the betta!!

How many ghost shrimp should I get if I have 1 male betta and a snail in a planted 10 gallon?

You could easily have half a dozen or more. They don't have that much of a bio-load. Heck you could probably have a dozen.

I've got about 50+ RCS in my tank, with 2 nerites and herds of trumpets. Shrimp do not have a big bio load.
