Just throwing this out there but neos don't tend to breed well with Amazonia. It drops the pH too low. I'd recommend trying some cheap crystals. They'd be cheaper from members here than what...

GH/KH test kits (both in one kit) are under $10. Those strips you used are wildly inaccurate so I wouldn't even think about getting those again. Always top off with RO water, never tap or your GH...

Depends on what you want to do. If you want to try at tibees and have multiple tanks and be willing to invest years in culling, throw them together. If you don't care either way, throw them...

GH and TDS too low. In my experience, GH lower than 5 and you will start seeing molting issues. TDS could go up another 50-100 and be safe for both the CRS and RCS. Neos tend to like much harder...
