Ghost shrimp like many other shrimp are scavengers they will feed on anything. I've never seen a ghost shrimp kill another shrimp or well anything, but the moment another shrimp/fish or anything dies in the tank, they are quickly picking it over. Bamboo shrimp and ghost shrimp should be fine together.
