I bought an Amano Shrimp for my 5 gallon tank with my Betta "Montezuma". Looks like Montezuma isn't that bloodthursty like I thougt, LOL. they cominng along great. Should I get more shrimp or do they fight which each other?

The shrimp will get along fine.

How many should I get for the 5 gallon? I guess it is not so much bioload from them, but still like to know my limit.

You could get two more. Be sure to drop an algae wafer for them once in a while, they are veggie eaters.

Thanks so much for that information. Just dropped one in. Didn't know they only eat veggies.

They will eat leftover food but they mostly graze on algae.
