Every betta is different, I had some in with my one and never had a problem. Also supply plenty of hiding places and they should be fine.
Mine are always dragging plant pieces around and munching on them. However, I've seen shrimp breeders recommend Vegetable wafers and crab and lobster foods in very small quantities. I would distract my betta and drop some sinking pellets in the plants when I had mine all living.
Shrimps are scavengers and will eat whatever they can find. :)

What if I got some ghost shrimp in my 10g and some of them bred? Would the fry be any harm? I was just expecting Duke to eat them, however is it safe for them to eat?

i was noticing the other day that my shrimp are totally missing their front pincher arms. at least they still have the little micro mouth claws so they can still eat! its kind of sad watching them waive the little stumps around but i guess they are alright. i have read that female shrimp wont get eggs if they feel threatened so i guess my girls happy. she has a bunch of wierd looking eggs (Betta caviar) under her----

I'm sorry but the way you phrased that made me laugh sooo hard

I'm lucky that my bettas don't even bother my RCS, when they were in a tank on their own I had 23 of the little things and then 1 by 1 they started to eat eachother so I put them in with Clark Gable and all 11 still live I've been hoping to get some ghost shrimp but I can't find them anywhere how big do these things actually get? for some reason I imagine them to be about 1-2 inches lol

Ghost shrimp are just as little as the RCS. :) I'm surprised you can't find them, people buy them as food for other pets actually. They're usually really cheap. O.o
