Normally is called like that. Water hardness or dissoled minerals in the water.
It has little to do with pH (some relationship exists thou) and no relationship with
Ammonia, nitrites, or nitrates. I dont have that kit but i know fish in water parameters of hardness not for them can really stressed them. He could get use to it, but its hard to predict.
That fish, with the reserch i did needs a hardness of 12-15 which is relativatly soft and low.
The water temp is fine, it could go until 80F. But watchout if the room has temp fluctuations so it doesnt rise above 80f. Also water current may help, if it doesnt. But the 1st i would tackle and check is the hardness. Believe me, fish can get stressed easily. I normally buy fish that are able to cope to a wide range of parameters. Hope i helped a bit, sry i have nvr posted in this forum, but ive had fishtank expirience for years. Although other members can help me out, verifiying me.. :)
