With numbers like those, I wouldn't change a thing IMO. Consistent parameters are more important than the percieved "right" ones. I add nothing to my well water which has a KH of 80, GH of 180, and pH of around 8 and keep plenty of Malawis and some Tanganyikan shellies as well, without issues.

To raise kH, add baking soda. (It will also raise your pH, so keep that in mind).
gH-Epsom salt but honestly, 230 ppm is fine. :wink:
