Exclamation Ghost Shrimp questions!

How many, if any at all, ghost shrimp can go into a 3 gallon tank with one betta? I read that they have less waste than snails and and they ARE kind of cute. ^.^ Is there anything special they need in their diet?

8 month - Betta -VT-male- Peach
9 month - Golden Retriever -Female- Dixie
7 year old - Cinnamon Cockatiel -Female- Ladybird
And a black mystery snail named, Bon-Bon Hoss

To do list:
1. Save money
2. Ask Parents
3. Buy all the Bettas in PetSmart.

:D Good. They are pretty cute, too. They should thrive in the 3 gallon.

In a 3g upto 6 depending on decor, if you have plants and stuff for them to climb on I'd go upto 6, if not much decor then 3-4.
