Whisker Shrimp

Went to LFS and saw these guys. An employee told me there relatively new to the aquarium scene and some information says they may be aggressive. I bought 3 and have only introduced one into my 10G. I don't have my betta in there currently but Blueberry(the whisker) seems to be getting along with sapphire (my green fire tetra). I think I'm going to put in one more whisker and return the third as it seems aggressive in the QT tank.

Anyone had any experience with Whisker shrimp? Will it get along with Fred (betta)? Will it pick on my lil fishies in their sleep?

Blueberry (my whisker shrimp) quickly attacked the little neon tetra, but does fine with the large green fire tetra and my betta. Probably because they are the same size as blueberry.
