The way you can tell ghosties from imposters is that ghosties have red joints (for future referance)
Amano would be a good choice, bland coloring so they wouldn't be as noticed as the cherries were. I suspect that them being so bright is the reason he attacked them so try something without as much color for sure next time.
Also, you have to be ready for deaths anytime you add a shrimp (or other small fish) to a betta's tank. They have such curiosity that tem wanting to see what it is usually results in a couple deaths, it should die down in a few days, if you have any survivors left I suggest adding more cherry shrimps just so you can avoid breeding of different colors and ending up with brown shrimp instead of red.
