GH and TDS help.

957 2
Hi everyone,
I’m trying to achieve good parameters for my Cherry Shrimp but I am having trouble. My tanks GH is 125.02ppm and the TDS is around 330pmm. Is the GH too low and how would I raise it without further increasing the TDS? Also, is the TDS of 330ppm ok for Cherry shrimp and would it affects their breeding and molting? Furthermore it would be worthy for me to mention that I have been using Seachem Equilibrium to raise the GH gradually from 71.44ppm to 125.02pmm. The Cherry Shrimp are also housed with Guppies.
Any advice would be much lot appreciated.

Thank you.

From my understanding, Equilibrium is "dirty".... meaning, if you want cleaner TDS, you need to get a shrimp specific mineral. (or, if available, Nutrafin African Cichlid Conditioner - heard it's good)

Are you using a test strip or a liquid test kit to measure GH?
