What hardscape were you using, if any? Potting mix shouldn't raise KH and GH. If anything, it would probably have a mild acidifying effect.

I wouldn't recommend using a buffering substrate, such as Stratum, unless you're using RO water and not adding any KH when doing water changes. The fluctuations can kill a shrimp colony.
