Hey everyone

I recently bought a 29 gallon tank and ran it for the last 4 weeks. Did a water change to get ready for the new fish and Nitrates stayed high above 40ppm. I've come to realize the water out of the tap is high nitrate and I now have to get a water system put in to deal with it for our own drinking water.

The problem now is the system will not only remove nitrates but also has to soften the water. I'm running out of hope on being able to start my tank because if I bypass the softener I'm still left with too much nitrates. After looking for days online and only seeing negative responses to softened water in an aquarium, I'm not sure where to go from here.
