You'll get different answers from different people.

I plan to do part Tap/part Distilled.
Some people do straight RO/DI and add supplements to remineralize the water.

I will probably do small 10-25% changes weekly or 10% twice a week. Depending on parameters.

I will ONLY have Shrimp in the new tank, so low bioload. I've got plenty of plants in there.

Stable, clean cool low PH water is the goal.

Sake has some good advice.

And yes, neocardinia and Cardinia will not interbreed.

I know RO/DI water can be expensive to produce on a budget, so id try the substrates first if you're shooting for lower grade CRS

Sage advice for noobie shrimp keepers
Great thread on TPT if you're interested in reading up on shrimp. Talks about all aspects from TDS to pest control in your shrimp tanks.
