For my Neo's my water parameters are as follows:
Temp: 22-25c Ph: 6.5-7.5 Ammonia: 0 Chlorine: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 0 Kh: 3-10 Gh: 6-8 Tds: 600-800ppm.
The tds is very high, but that is straight out of the tap here in Adelaide.All the Neo's I have are locally bred in Adelaide tap water so they are used to solids in the water. My Caridina do not live in hard tap water. I use R/O water for them mixed with Bee Shrimp GH+ for a total tds of 120ppm.Hope this was helpful.

The absolute best food to feed your shrimp is Bacter AE. It is basically biofilm in a bottle. Best food to increase the survival rate of shrimplets without a doubt. I use it religiously 3 times a week. Do not feed as much as they say on the bottle. I feed half of what is recommended on the bottle. On the other days I just feed "solid" foods (dried spinach, shrimp king pellet food, soya husks, etc).
I hope this advice helps not only newcomers but also experienced shrimp keepers aswell. Happy Shrimpin'.
