Plans, Plans…

I used air operated sponge filters in all my breeding and rearing tanks, including cichlid tanks so I didn't suck up any babies with a power filter.
Excellent point there- I added sponge prefilters to the power filters for the same purpose. Good sized sponge filters would also have been ideal, especially if the goal is to breed them. I don't think that's your hope, right? You didn't have the resources for rearing them.
I found my water provider’s quarterly analysis.
pH: 7.14
Total Hardness: 27 mg/l
Calcium Hardness: 22 mg/l
Alkalinity: 30 mg/l
Among a bunch of less relevant stuff.

Edit: OK 1 mg/l in water = 1 ppm so that makes things easier
