You got like 6 neos in each tank visible. The other caridinas are in much higher numbers. This clearly indicates what I said is true. I'm not even trying to argue here. It's basic husbandry of the shrimp. Neos require kh. Sorry but it's a fact. Sure they can 'last' without it, but you'll never having a thriving colony in caridina parameters.
