Do you use any ferts?  I would take a TDS reading of your water prior to remineralizing.  I would start the process of elimination.  I never really look at the TDS of the tank just when changing water.  I may be different but I've never paid attention to the TDS of the tank as long as my GH and KH are on point.  I personally never strive for my tank to be perfect.  Ive never really been good at following the rules laid out by the internet police.  I was told I could not use Co2 on a Taiwan Bee tank and not only have I done exactly that but my tank is thriving.  My bees and all happy healthy and reproducing.
