I tend to agree, none of those parameters are at all alarming for general fish keeping..

Yeah, the water is a little bit hard at 331ppm/18.5 dGH, but fish adapt over time to all kinds of conditions.

Also, if the fish you have are already adapted to those parameters, suddenly changing to "better" parameters could actually kill them. Take any changes that you make slowly and give your fish a chance to adapt.
