I appreciate the input. actually I called the water company and went to a LFS for water testing and it turns out my KH and DH tests are off. Both the company and the tests from the LFS said that the water we have here is actually moderately hard and based on research I have been doing within perfectly acceptable ranges for endlers livebearers.

Probably you should pick fish that are more appropriate for your water, like neon tetras or perhaps some killies.
