New Tank Water Parameter Help

Hi I made new 8 gallon tank. I just finished it yesterday so maybe the parameters will change but I do have some questions. I transferred the substrate and water from my stable tanks into this one tank. Right now it stocked with 5 pygmy cories, I think the Hastatus variety. I'm going to be stocking it with Neocaridina shrimps (not sure which one but most likely the easier one). What is the proper water parameter for these two fish/shrimp? I tried looking online but there are a varying info and it hard to find out what the right one. My water parameter is:

Gh: 180 ppm
KH: 80 ppm
PH: 7
No2: .5 ppm
No3: 20 ppm
TEMP: 70 F

Any info would be appreciated.

Consistency and patience is key. They're pretty accommodating just find the easiest way to stabilize your parameters and go from there. Good Luck!
