Do not use softend water in your tank. It will kill your plants. I learned this the hard way. Just use water from the bypass or garden hose and the plants will be fine. As for the temp, I usually add cold water to a 5 gallon bucket from my garden tap. Then I top off the bucket with a couple of big cups of hot water from the tap, that brings the temp up to normal limits. Check your tap water to see if there's chlorine in it, if not just add the water to the tank and then prime it.
