Dead Ghost Shrimp & Ammonia Levels

I put four ghost shrimp in my 10 gallon yesterday (pretty decently planted) with my dwarf gourami. Four also went in with my betta and I already see a dead one with him. I drip acclimated them over two or three hours (I have pretty hard water) but I don't know if the betta killed it or it just died on its own. It brought it to my attention that one could die in the plants and I wouldn't know about it. Do I need to dig through my plants regularly or will it not have a big enough effect on my ammonia to bother? I won't be adding any more until I finish stocking the tank and know my water won't kill them off but I was just curious!

I wouldn't worry about a missed dead ghost shrimp. No way will it add enough ammonia for it to be a cause of concern. That's even just provided that it's not eaten by something else.

Will the other shrimp eat deceased ones?
