My betta saved my cherry shrimp

Well heres the story, last night I saw one of my large ghost shrimps man handling one of my much smaller cherry shrimps but something awesome happened. The ghost shrimp was scavenging for food and dug under a moss ball and found an unexpected surprised cherry trying to free itself from the hungry ghost shrimp. I felt I needed to break up the one sided battle but didn't have a net nearby and I also didn't want to throw my unwashed hand into the tank. With no other choice, I franticly tapped the glass, the ghost shrimp didn't even flinch, all 18 neon tetras went into chaos mode and then out of no where came my male betta, he dived down towards the commotion, observed for 2 seconds and pecked at the aggressive ghost shrimp, allowing the cherry to swim free

I think I'm going to have to re-home the ghost shrimps because I don't think my betta can play referee 24/7
