I don't have any moral issues wiith trying them out. Worst case scenario is they end up as feeders which they were probably initially intended to be anyway.

Pretty much nothing other than a sponge on your filter intake. They'll eat ANYTHING.

I have my male betta in the tank I keep ghost shrimp in for feeding my puffers, and I've never seen him take much notice of them. I've just had one lone shrimp for a couple weeks since I've been unable to make a trip to the LFS for more and he's been just fine holding his own against the betta. Not to mention mine's a plakat (short fins) so he can swim a little faster than your average betta.

So do I have to get any special food for them? Some sort of pellet?

They'll eat whatever they can get their grubby little pinchers on....lol. Mine run off and hide with whole shrimp pellets, algae tablets, hunks of peas. They also swim upside down at the top of the water to grab flakes. Fun to watch!!

Algea wafers are always a pretty good choice!! Or you could just feed shrimp pellets and flakes. They really do eat just about anything! My male betta stared at them once they first went into the tank, but were soon ignored

In a betta only tank there shouldn't be any leftovers for the shrimp to feed on, so you'd want to use some sort of sinking pellet or wafer.
