If your filter is adjustable, I would up it. A 10 gallon gives your Betta enough room to get away from the current and as others have noted, current gives Bettas exercise and makes them stronger. An alternative filter would be an internal with a spray bar you can point to the tank wall which baffles but not too much. This one (or the IF-201) is small and effective. Unfortunately, both are out of stock but expected this month.

He goes after the yellow shrimp but doesnt eat them just picks at them.

How lovely for them; nothing like a stress-filled life.

Adding too many fish at the same time, even Nano/Micro fish, can change the bioload enough to overwhelm the beneficial bacteria and start a mini-cycle. Keep an eye on your parameters if you add more than 5-7 (the number most suggested by long-time aquarists). And as I don't always follow my own advice, I can attest that water changes and Prime will get you through the mini-cycle. :)
