That's a claw alright... don't think you got real ghost shrimp.

Nothing out there will eat fish poo. Cherries will work for any detritus/algae there is.

If they don't have red joints on their claws they aren't real ghosties. The fakers are overly aggressive and you should remove them immediately.

As for another type of shrimp, i suggest amanos, they are the only true algae eating shrimp and are harmless towards betta.
