That's very unfortunate that your betta killed all your shrimp. :(
I'm sorry that happened! :(
At least he got some hardy snacks.

For ghost shrimp, it is best if the temperature is closer to 78 than 80 degrees and plenty of hiding places. They are also super sensitive to water quality and just a small amount of ammonia in the water can kill them. The only have a lifespan of 1.5 years so go for the smaller ones when purchasing.

sorry about your loss fishman12

I wonder if chitin breaks down into ammonia? I had one molt during the night and I thought he'd turn around and eat his shell but I guess he didn't.
