Increase your pH to 7.5 or so (do it gradually). Also they like hotter temperatures versus other dwarf shrimp, low 80s. They seem to be able to handle a wide variety of kH and gH, but I think in the lake they come from they are relatively low actually, below 4 for both. If you improve your condition baby survival should go up quite a bit. With all the problems I've heard about keeping Sulawes I am surprised they are doing as well as they are in your conditions.
