Ahahah! Pleased out of his pants.
Anyway, on the ghost shrimp, I would recommend acclimating them the same way you would acclimate a fish. make sure the temps equal out and then slowly add a little of your tank's water into the bag.
Other than that, nothing to it.
Two or three would probably be ok for a 1 gallon tank... maybe... I think.
But overall, I would agree with everybody else that you shouldn't try it. I had three ghost shrimp in my five gallon tank and after a few months they figured out how to hitch a ride on my betta while munching on his fins. Not good.
I think this is pretty rare, but I have a feeling it might be more likely in such a small tank where they would be so close to each other.
If you do still want to try it though, you should watch and make sure you don;'t notice your bettas' fins suddenly being torn up. If this happens, remove the shrimp asap.
Maybe save up for a three or three+ gallon tank before you start working with tankmates?
