So we're dealing with medium hard water that is basic in pH. The latter may slowly lower, depending upon the carbonate hardness. But assuming for the moment it remains, you have options from the livebearers, rainbowfish (see under Atherinids in the profiles), angelfish, medium cichlids (Central and South American types), Cyprinids (peaceful barb, danio, medium and larger rasbora, medium characins that manage in such water. Parameters are mentioned in the profiles, some fish can adapt, some can't, that will be noted.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
