Dwarf shrimp usually just don't last in a betta tank. You would need an exceptionally docile betta.
I have a yellow shrimp colony with 1 betta, the key is a lot of plants.

Can you elaborate on whisker shrimp? are there different types or maybe another common name? How big are they?

They are like ghost but get bigger (2ish inches). Petco sells them. That is the only name i know them by.

I have a heavily planted 10 gallon and I STILL wouldn't put my shrimp through the stress.

Prey and predator. Just not my preferred mix honestly. Jackson (SIP) would definitely have picked off the ones he saw and would have terrorized them. I have three other bettas now and I have absolutely no doubt they would bully shrimp of that size.
