Orange Neo's berried

A week an a half ago I started finding dead neo's everyday without any reason.
My shrimps started to hide and refused to eat. This is not a good sign.
I checked the water parameters and found the Nitrate was 40ppm.
The orange neo's came from a hobbyist with lower nitrate so I guess my tank with high nitrate readings was the death cause.
I got biofilter media which reduces nitrate added to the external filter in a stocking and within two days the reading were down to 5ppm. The shrimp deaths stopped found them to be busy grazing and wandering around the tank.

Yesterday I came home to see 3 females berried.

I have a Tetratec 700 external filter with 4 baskets.
Inside I've kept the original black filter foam
Added 1 litre Sera Siporax in separate baskets.
Also JBL filter floss, a small bag with Seachem Cuprisorb and JBL Clearmec.
The filter intake is covered with Fluval sponge the size is an exact match.
The sponge reduces the flow and protects shrimps from getting sucked into the filter.
The outlet is a spray bar turned towards the back wall of the aquarium inorder to avoid strong currents which can disturb the shrimps.

I was interested in getting Matrix but it is very expensive so I stuck to Siporax I use it in other tanks too.

Initally I'm able to upload pictures but later on unable to upload pictures in any thread including mine so I'm adding a link to a few pictures including a full view of the tank.

Frankly I'm not thrilled with the tank I think it looks shabby and unkept as the mosses have over grown.
But I do not want to trim or upset the tank in any way especially because of the berried females.
