Shrimps are finicky creatures, even with extreme care during acclimation you should keep in mind that you'll always lose some, so buy more than you intend to keep. The weak usually die off pretty easily.
I never had ADF before but RCS are small, your Betta will attack/eat them based off of his temper and how well he does will tankmates, also ADFs might gulp in some shrimp?
I'm not sure, like I said, never had RCS. Amano shrimps are bigger and tankier, they might fare better in your tank.
