My tap water comes out at 2 gh and 2 kh with a ph of 7.4 (not degassed) and a tds of 25.

I previously had been trying to put enough magnesium sulfate and calcium sulfate with a pinch of gh/kh+ to get my water to 85 tds with a gh of 5.

I had been targeting high tds while completely forgetting the gh. I decided to test the water from the tank today and it is at 170 tds with a gh of I'm not using that many drops (12+)

Now my question is what do I do? I obviously have to have a good gh range for shrimp but also know tds is a big factor as well.
