Is you tank cycled?
Just saw the post about ghost shrimp above me. A lot the time Ghost Shrimp can be evil. I have had some attack a betta and some just clean the tank. Just be careful. Ghost are cheap, but they can the hard to take care of a lot of time.
I recommend Amano Shrimp. They are awesome and very peaceful. They are to big for the betta to eat a lot of the time. I have some the same size as my female bettas and they don't bother them. The Betta fish and the shrimps.
Bettas: Rose, Sophia, Addie, Ghost, Buster, Holt, Aidan, and Mercutio!
Just my animals: 0.2 Cornsnakes, 0.2 Bearded Dragons, 1.0 Water Dragon, 2.2 Crested Geckos, 1.0 Tiger Salamander, 0.0.1 Tadpole, 0.0.2 Red Eared Slider Turtles, 0.0.1 Map Turtle, 0.0.2 Hermit Crabs, 1.0 Hamster, 1.0 Rabbit, 0.1 Horses, 2.2 Dogs, 0.2 Cats, Chickens, Ducks, Oscar Tank, Planted Bowl, 10 Gallon, 4x 0.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and Planted 25 Gallon Tank....Is that it?
