Why are you adding to buffer TDS? What's your TDS levels?

Remember that as tank matures, TDS will raise slowly and progressively. I've got load of mineral rocks and balls which is increasing my TDS to high levels...

my tds levels are quite low around 90ppm which ide like up around 160ppm or so, mineral rocks are out of the questions as im treating 1000s of liters of water.

How about SaltyShrimp GH+?

Works for me, My water source is TDS 20 or so and it has boosted to TDS 225.

Huge fan of the Salty Shrimp....buffers TDS with a beneficial mix/ingredient for shrimps too... No doubt the. Est and ultimate way...have noticed a huge improvement with shrimplets etc....

      Shrimps will do well with just a sponge filter operated with a air pump, that's the very least you should have in the tank if you intend to keep the shrimps, if you don't intend to keep the shrimps, just feed them to your betta.

      I re-read the post, and I see the shrimp have been moved. As Simon, said, it's best to get the tank at least an air sponge filter.

      I think they have separated the shrimp into their own small tank but the betta is still in the big tank if I have read it rightly?  Simon

      Not a good sign. The fish already has a taste for shrimp. If the shrimp aren't too damaged now, wait till the betta gets hungry.   You need a filter, but more so for your betta.

      Sorry to hear that putting your shrimps with the betta didn't go well. My first betta couldn't have shrimps either as he would go after them. My current betta is ok though, he gets very close and watches them but nothing else? It would be best to have a filter if you can get one small enough, and if it is adjustable have it on low flow because it is a small tank, the shrimps are fine in flowing slow water,! Are you planning to keep them in this tank long-term or is this tank temporary until you decide where to go next with them? It is possible that some may die from injuries/stress/shock etc, but hopefully they will be ok. Simon
