Ghost shrimp can really jump so you'll need to have a covered tank. Of course bettas jump too so it should definitely be covered. I wouldnt worry too much about the scrape on the head. Just keep your eye on it. Sometimes theyjust bump into something and its not serious.

A lot of time bettas get constipated really easily, so this could be what youre seeing. His scales arent sticking out, are they? Try not feeding him for a day or two, adn after that make sure he gets a good variety of foods. My veiltail has the same problem if I only feed him betta pellets. Try frozen bloodworms, too. They love those!

Those bettas are very good jumpers, and they can find the smallest spot or hole to make it through. I had a female betta in a covered tank, except for a hole of about on inch in diameter. And out she went! She even would have made it, if I would have found her instead of my cat! <_>
