my amano shrimp swims around all the time. I don't measure my TDS, because i don't have a meter, and i'm not trying to breed (only have 4 across 2 tanks) and, i guess they have always seemed to be fine. Both tanks stay around 77 degrees, have consistantly tested no ammonia, no nitrites and less than 20ppm nitrates (more often than not, no nitrates, but i've been dosing all the macros for the last few months) they swim around the tank from time to time. the smallest one, which is only around a half inch doesn't do it very much, but the two bigger ones in that tank (both are around 2+ inches) swim around all the time. once in a while they will even land on the filter outlet and ride the current across the tank. they seem to be snacking most of the time they stop here and munch, stop there and munch.
