New to R/O water

Only question is....

What do I need to add to get all the minerals I need?
GH booster?

This will be for my shrimp tank.

I am saving up for an R/O unit but for now I'm making trips to the LFS for R/O water.

I just add a bit of marine salt mix. About 1 tsp per 10 gal. My Amanos, Nerites, Otos, SAEs, and White Clouds all respond well.

I use mosura mineral plus, I've had great results with that. I also used fluval shrimp mineral supplement.
