If you heavily plant though it'll be likely fine may I reccomend hornwort it is a very good hideout for your betta and will be found at Petsmart it is very messy though
Ethan:I hope your plan goes well

I've watched my previous sorority gobble down 10 cherry shrimp that were new to the tank, also witnessed them gobbling 20 cherrys, which were in there first.
Amanos,t hey are fine with.

But my fallback position will be to place him in my 7.5 gallon with an
established colony of cherry shrimp -
sure hope I don't have to do that - guess it will be goodbye to the shrimp

And this may relate yo your question and you may find it helpful even though your doing cherry or amano shrimp this is about ghost shrimp
tell me if you find it helpful
quoted from Tsuhei
I actually suggest not getting them from my own personal experiences.
I got two for Astaire's tank a while back. They actually started attacking my fish. In fact, they latched onto his tail fin and ate part of it even though I fed them regularly. I took them back to the petsmart immediately and didn't even ask for my money back. I didn't want them anymore.
Right after that incident, he got finrot and I've been battling it for about 4-5 months.
Ethan: I find that might not be the case with cherry shrimp though just be cautious I think it'll probably be fine tho
quoted from Shinnybetta
Ghost shrimp don't produce that much waste. And it isn't very harmful. Also, I don't think those were ghost shrimp, there are larger species that look similar and may attack fish.
I would also consider that post
Look here too
