Quick Question

Could I house a few ghost shrimps in a 5.5 fairly densely planted NPT with a betta without having to use a filter?

Plants:
Anacharis
Hornwort (in mail)
Duckweed (in mail)
Wisteria
Banana Plant (lilly apparently)
Cardimine
Mint Charlie
Anubias
Micro Sword grass

Okay... I feel like I'm becoming a plant hoarder... lol xD
Anyway, yes I have other tanks these plants will go into ^^

Substrate is Miracale Gro Organic (soil) and Eco Complete (cap)
Light is 6500k

Just covering all my bases. I will be setting up this tank some time this week and I'm crazy excited about it :D

Yes, you can have shrimp. They'll be able to live long there with all the plants.

My betta is really gentle... we'll see how he is with the shrimps, but he doesn't even like to flare at his reflection, so I don't think he's too aggressive

Mine is almost the same way! He only messes with you if you attack him, then you die! but no one ever fights with him, so peaceful. he has even broke up fights between my guppies!
