Also remember temps are a major key in keeping them alive. Hawaii people that have shrimp and breed keep them going in low temps 75 and below. No more. I breed shrimp in tap water 7.3 - 7.4 but I never go anything above that. I stop doing tap at my new house cause of copper piping. The copper was killing my shrimp.

I am not sure about the low grade CRS/CBS. But I gave some (6) of my S/SS CRS/CBS to my buddy and he breeds them with his tap water and/or sometime 50/50 Tap/RO water mixed. It seem like two of his female are berried right now, not sure if they will hatch successful or not for later yet. But the TAP water in our city is low pH like 6.2-6.4, TDS: 40

I used to breed a lot of mine in tap. My discus spawn in my tap. Its hard to answer that question though,because of too,many variables. You may have luck but you may not. RO just removes most of the variables and makes ruling out problems easy
