I've done 10% WC's in my 10G tank with straight RO/DI water without berried mamas dropping eggs. My tanks are at ~180TDS.
Typically for me, since my tanks are open top I do tend to wc with straight RO once every week for berried mamas to maintain the TDS in the tank. That's if I care for egg droppage

I do a water change every 2 weeks if I really care for shrimp breeding, in most cases I don't and just do it every week. This is cause my shrimps are always berried and if I cared, I'd never be able to do a wc.
