If the tank is super crowded with plants, I'd watch out for legginess. Any stem plants you have might drop their lower leaves since their upper leaves are getting all the light. I'd also just start trimming some of the faster growing plants (duckweed especially), so that no one plant outcompetes any other by shading it.

As for "no shrimp food sinking into the substrate" I'm kind of skeptical about this. Unless you have the food on a little shrimp dish or leaf, then you can't be sure that there isn't food disintegrating and entering the substrate. But regardless,

Sounds like you're doing a pretty great job!

If you do decide to do a water change, start out very small (maybe .5 gallon at first), just so that you don't shock the shrimp.
