Ring of death question

Looking for some advice for my neo tank regarding ring of death molting issue.

The tank is a 10 gallon that has been setup for about 8 months with shrimp in for about 5 months. Started with 10 and now have maybe 50/60.

TDS: 315-330
Temp: 75f
Ph: 7.3~
Water change every 2-4 weeks with 24-48hr aged RO water remineralized with shrimp king gh/kh booster
Feeding 1-2 a day (crab cuisine, micro worms, bacterial powder).

Evaporation is taken care of via aged ro water top offs. Not super Johnny on the spot with those. Water sometimes gets 5-10% evaporated. At that level tds gets to 330 when topped off its 310/315.

My first shrimp showed the ring about two months ago and Im not sure if it recovered or died as a dead shrimp probably wouldnt last more than a couple hours in my tank before being eaten by shrimp and snails and now I can see it in three or four juveniles.
