My water's about 6-7 dkh. So kinda hard. And it comes out of the tap at like 8.2ph (but drops as it sits out). I think the kh is pretty low cause even DIY CO2 dropped my ph quite nicely. Other than that I don't really know what's in it... it's lake water so I would assume it has some ... stuff in it. I would like to invest in a RO filter one day but I'm still trying to recover from buying a regulator and co2 cylinder that I can't use!

FTS as of tonight, fish seem happy and much less skittish than they were in the BB tank already. Clip on the front was to hold the tube for drip acclimation!
