Increasing Babies Survival Rate?

I don't have good experience in keeping shrimplets alive. Yesterday i saw some babies as i saw in past but i never see them again after few days. So i hope this doesn't happen again this time. What are some tips to increase baby survival rate?

I already installed a airstone to aerate the water because use bacter ae.

I use these foods. Bacter ae, glasgarten shrimp dinner, dennerele shrimp king color. Do i need to use a specialized baby food as well? Or if bacter ae is enough and in case of babies how often i need to use bacter ae?
Also please mention any other tip you have to increase babies survival rate. Thanks.

I see babies as well (probably less than a week old) in my shrimp only tank. Then they disappear. I have a ton of subwassertang and moss so there is no telling if they are simply hiding in there or dying off. I cant say if I see an increase in small juveniles in the tank. Then again, there are few berried females in the tank at the moment.
OP - I know they sell food geared toward the increased survival of shrimp fry but in a lot of cases, fry manage to survive despite lack of specific care. The amount of available biofilm helps (the addition of Bacter AE should promote a healthy biofilm).
