You do not have soft water. Usually you need to soften the water with RO (Reverse osmosis) or a cheap alternative is to add hydrochloric acid/muriatic in a separate container and let sit for a few day until the pH is 7.
No...Apistos are South American, not African. They do just fine as community fish.

So, with a GH of 2 dGH, how do I not have soft water? pH is not hardness...they are totally different things.
