Wow, I had no idea. So they give 'live' birth then? It's probably my filter sucking them in. It has a sponge, but it's probably too powerful for the tank size. No fish in the tank, just shrimp...

Yes you can. The filter box only takes up about 2/3 of the space in the back. There's plenty of room underneath for other filter materials.
