C habrosus like floor space. I have mine in a 10g.
I realize it's risky and certaintly not optimal, depending on the individual betta. Any advantage to male vs. female or vice versa in this case?

Why ghost shrimp specifically?

Mine don't notice the GS. RCS are colorful targets.

Not all Bettas can be with other fish. I'd try a female over a male if you're not used to Bettas' body language.

After I replace the substrate in our tetra tank I'll think about introducing GS or Amano Shrimp as a cleanup crew.

What are your water stats like Coursair?
