Bettas are hit-and-miss with shrimp. Some are fine, some will kill them.

A badis might not be a great plan with the frogs. Perhaps consider a sparkling gourami? Slightly larger, but fairly similar in behavior.

Underweight algae eaters don't usually last long. If you can't find a nice plump one at the store, don't buy any.
Also, test your water parameters.

What redness? I just see a mild roan-ish tint around its entire head. Natural color variation, I think.

Give him some things up near the top to lay on, bettas love that.
He looks fine to me. He'll probably color up after a week or so, and you'll have a lovely blue betta.
