How to raise TDS in a shrimp tank

So I’ve had a few shrimp die off recently and everything I had tested was ok. I bought a TDS pen off amazon as it’s the only thing I’ve not tested and it’s reading at 84ppm which is the similar to what my tap water reads it is way lower than any of my other tanks... what could have caused this? And which products would you recommend to increase this?

What's your GH, KH and pH? What kind of shrimp have you lost or are trying to keep? If any Neocaridina, ghost, Amano, or such then Seachem equilibrium should do fine and is available at your local stores. If Caridina you will want a GH only booster.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
