Shrimp have a really low bio load so it wouldnt be any problem at all to add a few more, especially if you have live plants. You could easily get away with like 8-10 in the 5 with your betta, but I wouldnt go that far until you know for sure your tank can handle it.
Also, shrimp need really steady water parameters, so I would suggest making sure your tank is fully cycled and established before adding anymore just in case :)
