Thanks for the replies all... I ended up testing it and everything was in a good range. I don't have the numbers in front of me however.
I'm not worried so much about the chloramine as I treat and age the water I use in my smaller tanks... my future 55 gallon project will be too much water to age but it will still be treated, haha.

Hey all, quick question regarding water hardness... is the Vancouver water hard enough to support common aquarium plants with having to go through the extra headache of manipulating water chemistry?
Any input would be appreciated.
