I remineralize my RO water to a 7.5 dGh with Calcium Sulfate and Magnesium Sulfate and my TDS is 180ppm. At 86 ppm TDS you GH should be much lower. From what I read on the label for NutraFin African Cichlids is not much really, they don't tell you exactely what is in there and how much. Haven't used Salty Shrimp but many here have and with success.

my tap use to be 60ppm and 5 dGh. I maintained my tank parameters is at 160 ppm and 6 dGh. but lately my tap water is 18 ppm and 1 dGh. had tried many water changes but nil fix. treated the water to 6 dGh before the water changes however the tds is at 60+ ppm... wish to know change the nutrafin to salty shrimp help. ideally tds 200 ppm and 6 dGh.
