OK then this brings up another issue.
My well water comes off a mountain and has a ton of iron sedimate in it, so of course we have a water softener. it has a KH of about 5. It is difficult to get to this water also as it requires crawling on my knees under the house to the tap comming off the pump. When I do water changes with this water it makes my water cloudy for an entire day or two.
Our tap water after it hits the ion exchange water softener has a KH of about 1 or less, its very, very soft. I am thinking since this water has been filtered and cleansed that it might just be better to use it, buffered with baking soda to a KH of ~5 everytime I do water changes. It would help me on both the temp of the water, and the ease of changes.
I seriously think that the tap water coming straight from the well is not good for the fish, i was having trouble keeping them alive until I started using start right. I still have a bit of trouble keeping fry alive.
