I never had a problem with my ghost shrimp. Usually when one of the bettas stalks them they swim away (or jump) when the feel the betta getting near

Yea I'm positive they are ghost shrimp. I took them out of my bettas tank and put them in a separate smaller tank. My betta looked better and happier last night when I took them out but today he's been lethargic and he's been hiding in a shell at the bottom of his tank all day! I moved the shell because I hadn't seen him for hours and when he swam out he had little white stuff on him. I'm not sure if it's ick or some type of fungus. I have anitfungal treatment to put in water but I don't want to put that in the water if he doesn't have fungus. ahhh
