In my opinion:
- Your pH is too low. pH8 would be better
- Your KH and GH are far too high. In my tank, my water is at GH 3 and KH3, and my dennerli are breeding like crazies. In consequence, your TDS is far too high. 150-200 ppm would be better imho.
- Temperature should be at least 80-82f.
- If i were you, i would stop diffusing CO2 in the tank. CO2 cause pH swings that could harm your shrimps. Moreover with the good parameters for the dennerli, your plants will not be in a very good shape even with CO2. I don't have any plant in my dennerli tank. Only moss that do not need CO2.

Nevertheless, you should be able to adapt dennerli shrimps to your parameters, but with the good parameters, your population will grow very fast in a very few time.

Hope it help!
