Cherry Red Shrimp edible?

Hello everyone.
I'm going to be getting some Cherry Red Shrimp to help keep my tank clean. I'm going to have them in a separate tank from my bettas but I was hoping to put a few in the betta tank to help keep it slightly cleaner and give the bettas a fun snack.
Before I do this I want to make sure it won't hurt the bettas to eat them. So am I good?
Thanks. :)
Sarah

I want to know if it will hurt the bettas digestive track at all to eat the shrimp.
Such as, are they poisonous at all or anything.
May seem silly to ask but I want to be sure before putting it within mouth range of my babies.

Thank you. :) I don't mean to seem insensitive or harsh but it's bound to happen...

If I do put any in they will probably be young, little things. Ones that will definitely, easily fit into their mouths (I have 3). Besides all mine are pretty good size and have huge mouths....
