Can Bettas Eat Shrimp?

I just got a betta and i was wondering if they can eat brine shrimp or Seamonkeys. Will they kill my betta or will he just not eat them? Your input would be really helpfull! Thanks

Sea Monkeys are essentially brine shrimp, although they're supposedly bred to be slightly larger. Bettas absolutely love brine shrimp and will definitely eat them. Brine shrimp (live or frozen) make a good treat for your betta once in a while, but they aren't nutritionally balanced so they shouldn't make up a major part of your betta's diet.
