Hey everyone.

 

I just recently got a TDS meter and have begun monitoring my cherry shrimp tank. Websites says that TDS should be <200, but mine is (after a 20% water change) 230.

Is that okay? Should I base my goal TDS on my tanks normals? 

 

The parameters are ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate <20 GH 6 kH 2-3 temp mid 60's

I think that's definitely in the ok range. Mine run between 200 and 250, and I know other people have said they keep their Neos up to 300 or 400 without any problem.

And yes, I think it's definitely better to use the change in TDS as a guide, more so than an absolute number. I think that's what bugs the shrimp more after they're used to an environment, fast changes one way or the other.

That will be fine with neos. If you get into harder to keep shrimp you'll have to have RO water and remineralize to get low.

After I remineralize my RO/DI water with Salty Shrimp GH+ I usually get around 200, then over time it is about 230 where it sustains.
