While true shrimp are more likely to be snacks, ghost shrimp can sometimes be... difficult. Amano shrimp, I'd worry more about them being nommed than nomming.

STAY AWAY FROM GHOST SHRIMP!!! Although they are cheaper than amano they are super aggressive and don't clean up as much, same with whisker shrimp. I have amano and they clean up the algae wonderfully, although I do give them some freeze dried shrimp once in a while for protein. As long as your tank has enough hiding spots for the shrimp, they should be ok. My betta is HIGHLY aggressive and kills snails, but doesn't mind the amano at all.
