It also might help if you try to find some local fish keepers and ask about their experience. TDS of >800 is insane to me, but I have super soft tap water, so what do I know? There are people in your area who have tried to use the tap water already and you can ask them and see how it went.

That said, if I were you and I wanted to use the extreme tap water so I didn't have to fuss with RO, I would design my whole tank around it. Figure out what kind of plants and livestock thrive in hard water and do that rather than limping along with a poorly suited tank. (I would give you specific suggestions if I knew, but like I said, my water is totally different.)
