ghost shrimps in a 1 gallon tank with betta?

i was wondering if i could put one ghost shrimp in a 1 gallon tank with my male betta. he doesn't finish his food and was thinking about a ghost shrimp to help eat up the left overs. does a ghost shrimp need a filter?

it mostly depends on the bettas attitude if he is to teretorial he might eat the ghost shrimp ,they dont need filters you can just put in a live plant thats what i do in my 3 gal and i have had my ghost shrimp for about a year! XD

You shouldn't keep a betta in a 1 gallon, much less stuffing something else in there with him. We recommend 2.5 gallons for a betta alone. With a ghost shrimp, you should get 3 gallons or more.

Edit: Forgot to add, you should be removing any uneaten food from your betta's tank to avoid ammonia buildup.
