    How long have you had the tank?
    If you've had it a while, have you changed anything recently? Done a water change?

    High TDS with low GH, means you have sodium or potassium there. Do you have water softener for your home?

    Also just wanted to touch on the low kH... you need a kH of above 4 to maintain your ph at a stable level... also the khGh both need to be higher to help shrimps with molting etc...
