I would think so... just might have to watch how much he's eaten for the day. I don't know that they should be used as snacks though.

I tried ghost shrimp with my bettas too, the shrimp got eaten!

I went to clams and assassin snail for betta tank mates.

Ohh okay as long as he's not overfeeding on them then its safe.. Thanks for the tip. I might get those shrimps for him to play/eat.

That's a pretty small setup for a betta and ghost shrimp. I would really consider getting a bigger setup, to give your betta and the shrimp their equal space. Your betta is probably going to end up attacking the shrimp since they don't have much room to get away from each other. Please take this advice into consideration. You would probably do better to move the shrimp to another setup unless you want him to become a snack.
