Converting my tank to rain water

With the huge storm last night I’ve been collecting rain water in buckets.

I need to lower the TDS and pH of my shrimp tank as it’s healthier for them. The rain had a pH of 6.2 and TDS of less than 20.

To acclimatise my shrimp I am trying the same technique as introducing new shrimp to tank water – dripping in the water through an enema bag at a rate of about 2-3 drops per second.

Today I took out water then drip added about 1/6th of my tank for its water change. Tomorrow I will do the same again.
