The tank looked pretty cool a bit overgrown as well but those newer natural light photos it is looking very prim good stuff! Nerites are really nice, I found the eggs to be annoying though so I dont have any in my newer tanks.

I noticed that in earlier photos you have a foam filter on your canister intake, I assume to save small shrimp from the Cuisinart. Did you take it off due to flow restriction or just for aesthetics?

I regularly pull a dozen or so small cherries out of my Oase prefilter. They are not harmed but it does take time to separate them from the goo before reentry to the tank.

I ended up breaking the filter intake tip which forced me to stick a sponge on. Now that I have new pipes and no sponge I find shrimp stuck in the slits and in the filter every once in a while as well.

I would look into trying to find one of these for your intake:
