One thing I've noticed is that with extremely dense planting, especially at the water surface, fish that tend to be jumpers don't do it as often. I think fish (or shrimp) that feel threatened jump, but if they see that the surface is restricted and there is favorable cover nearby, they go for the protection of the plants. I think simply having the protection of the plants puts fish at ease, reduces their stress levels, and then they hardly jump.

In your case, if they are jumping from the rear of the tank, can you put more (higher plants) in that area?
