So i started with
KH 4.3
GH 5.x

did 50/50 tap/RO and now I have

KH 1.12
GH 2.24

CRS/CBS recommendations say KH 1-2 , GH 4-6. Since my GH is now half of what it should be.. do i need to worry about this or is there a way to bring it back up? or maybe less or maybe do a 70tap/30ro mix?

Just slowly drip 2-4 drops per second into the container you put the shrimp into. Do that for a while and then you can net the shrimp out and put them in the main tank.
