I've read on here that a ghost shrimp chowed on some Betta fins once. That has scared me away from them.

Ghost shrimp are crazy little buggers! I have a couple in with my guppies and they are a kick to watch. When it's feeding time I have one that will actually launch himself off a plant and swim to the surface upside down trying to grab flakes. I do also have one in with my betta but he just hides in the plants. I think the betta may have bullied him so I will probably move him back in with the other shrimp.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
55 Gallon - Polleni Tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - QT
75 Gallon coming soon!

Ghost shrimp are pretty neat. I like to watch them in the pet store. How many do you think I could fit in a 5 gallon?

I have a Chinese Algae Eater with my male betta. They get along great.
