Well I guess I'm not gonna try it I wouldn't like to bring a shrimp to get killed by stress or eaten by the betta but I'm still curious about how to recognize if my betta would be agressive

Well you could see how often he flares. How big he flares. What he flares at. All bettas are going to be territorial to some degree of course; that's just their nature. But that same nature is what gives them personality, IMO.

Well I have seen mine flaring at his reflection behind the heater and I have seen him flaring and moving around the bottom of the tank while flaring I've never seen a betta flaring at no reflection should I be concerned

Ammonia that is .25 won't kill most fish; it will kill shrimp. So you need to keep your parameters stable with 0 ammonia. They also do not like huge water changes.

You won't really know if your Betta can live with Ghost shrimp until you try it. I have one Betta that lives with inverts just fine; his brother doesn't. Like everyone has said, it depends on the personality.

I don't think you necessarily need to be concerned about him flaring, unless he's doing it all the time. What sort of plants and decor do you have for him? If you have a fair amount I there that should keep him interested and not so focused on flaring 24/7.

I have some anubias and usually hides under a fake plant he has in the middle of the tank and he doesn't do it all the time

Sounds like he's fine then. Flaring is usually a sign of happy healthy fish. Have fun!
