Some questions before I get my 2.5 gallon

I am looking to get a better home for Kai, my Halfmoon. He is currently in a Cubus 0.8 gallon unfiltered tank. I saw the mini bow 2.5 gallon, which caught my attention. I like that it comes with a filter and an airpump. I would also like to add some fish to the tank. So far, my plan is to get a ghost shrimp and a small cory cat (maybe 2). Would they be ok as tankmates in that size of tank? I also have another concern. I am used to feeding Kai 4 pellets a day just by himself. He eats them immediately after I drop them to his tank. How do you feed all fish and make sure that each of them get a chance to eat? I also am not familiar with ghost shrimp care. I heard that they could live with the betta fish. What do they eat, and what kind of care do they need?

Hope ya'll could help me out. Thanks!

There is only room for one betta in a 2.5. You could get a 5 gallon and get some shrimp or a snail.
If you wanted to get your betta some tank mates that are fish you need to get at least a 10 gallon.
