I agree with you, but I actually think the water level may be a little low. It all depends on the fish, if they were conditioned correctly, and the breeders preference.
I believe that if the fish were properly conditioned with the right foods and such, you can even fill the tank 100% and it wont (Shouldn't) effect the pair whatsoever.
Yes it would help if the tank is lower, but I think filling my tank to 5-6 inches helps for the fry to be stronger and will get rid of the really weak ones that would just not make it unless I was to lower the water level enough. (Quality over Quantity).

Looks like your filter is on. You need to turn it off until your fry are free swiming.
