Tank params are currently
Ammonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 5ppm

I don't have gh,kh, or tds meter.
Plenty of biofilm and plants and hiding spots
Only been a month.
Shrimp I care for (cherry) aren't alway's berried but seem to do the deed in spurt's.
Give em more time,and keep water quality up to snuff.
Babies are tiny, and you could have more than you know among the plant's.
