Your mineral content is quite high, especially sodium and chloride. Plants with a known tolerance for high mineral content include Anubias, Cryptocoryne wendtii, Java fern, Java moss, Anacharis, Vallisneria, Sagittaria and Bacopa. You can have a nice planted tank with these species and they are commonly available at most aquarium shops.

Fish species that would do well include platys, swordtails and mollies. These are very common in the aquarium trade and easy for beginners.

Otherwise, you could use RO and mix with your well water to reduce the mineral content if you wish to grow other species.
