Unhappy betta + ghost shrimp = very full fish

My husband and I recently got a crown tail and a ghost shrimp.... we have a 1.5 gallon tank(oh and I have had bettas before but never with another animal) at first the betta didn't seem to mind at first being the first 5 minutes... And then our crown tail so lovingly named sir lancalot started to chase the shrimp around... me having owned several dogs figured they were just "getting to know eachother" it was late so we went to bed.. well the next morning the little shrimp was nowhere to be found and we had a very full fish...... turns out getting to know eachother consisted of the poor little guy swimming for his life...

no they look like" look at me, I am a delicious betta meal" their color attract attention. If ghost shrimps do not survive, i doubt it any bright colored ones would.

HOWEVER, lots of hiding places for the shrimps might help. For example, I have a driftwood covered with marimo moss. It is hollow inside, so the 4 amano shrimps found refuge there because the betta could get to them.

One of my amano shrimps is carrying eggs, and I'm so depressed they won't live. :( Really wish they were able to reproduce in freshwater!!! I love my amanos!

Mine has had her eggs now since the beginning of February and she is still fanning them when I see her. They have turned from a dark grey to a brownish color.
