Ghost Shrimp

Is it possible that a ghost shrimp could pick on a betta?

Yes it is entirely possible. Some species of ghost shrimp are pretty aggressive.

Its possible. Your best bet would be to give them a LOT of space, because they are very territorial shrimp. I'd only recommend one shrimp per gallon, and a minimum of 5 gallons. Anything smaller might be pushing it a bit. I never had problems with mine, but I only had 3 in a twenty gallon tank.

I agree, one per gallon and at least 5, if not 10 gallons minimum.
