RCS = Red Cherry Shrimp. Tons of info about them in the shrimp forum on this site.
Not sure the betta would do well with shrimp though. A 3 gallon is a great setup for shrimp, cause they're very entertaining when they arent threatened by fish, and they have a miniscule bioload. My betta is mean, so he stays in his 1 gallon bowl and the shrimp are in the 5 gallon.
You could go with a couple snails instead. There are a ton of very pretty and interesting ones (red ramshorns, spixis, nerites) that would do well with your betta and not overload the tank if you're definitely keeping the fighting fish.
Nice tank, btw. Its gonna be a jungle.
