Or it simply could be an aggressive ghost shrimp.

I have heard that some "ghost shrimp" were hunting down guppies. They turned out to be something else. I think it might of been the macro brachium shrimp mentioned in the quote. I would keep an eye on that shrimp if I were you. If your shrimp has any red bits on it's feet odds are it isn't a ghost shrimp and will kill your Betta when it gets larger.
