One of my Bettas is not crazy about the shrimp he views them as a trespassers and try to drive them off. The other could care less about the shrimp. they don,t mess with one another

Well I had a power outage the night I got them so three of them died and now he seems less afraid of them I think he was overwhelmed with how many there were

Some ghost shrimp are more aggressive than others. There isn't one species, but many that fall under the generic "ghost shrimp" name, so some may not work too well with your fish.
