Yes, we're very fortunate here in Vancouver as far as soft water is concerned, for creating ideal conditions for many species of fish, particularly south American varieties which originate from soft water content, low in TDS's - it's actually great for keeping discus, for example. My tap water is usually around 6.8 and settles in to the tanks at around 6.5 or less - quite stable. I love it !
A little Equilibrium dosing doesn't hurt at all - very easy to maintain good water conditions.
