Well, looks to me like you have soft water out of the tap and border line soft-medium hard in the tank which makes sense due to mineral build up. Your measurements are in ppm, correct? You must have soft to medium hard water Matt or your Rummy Nose tetra wouldn't be doing so well.
Maybe this will help? http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2004-04/rhf/feature/index.php

I can tell you right now our tap water is on the hard side. I can't stand taking a shower in hotels where the water is so soft, if feels like you'll never get the soap off, lol.
Thanks for that link. I requested a Water Quality Report from the city today, and I should have it tomorrow. It will be last year's results, because this year's won't come out until late summer, nut better than nothing.
I am really curious to see what it says.

No, not really...I mean there's stuff on the canopy when I take it off to do PWC's, but it wipes right off with a wet rag
Check this, I used the TDS meter to check my well water yesterday...607 ppm!!!...is that even possible??
I calibrated the meter best I could 2 times yesterday...I hope I get the city water quality report today, like they promised

I'm pretty sure 607ppm qualifies as liquid rock.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

Holy crap!!! 607? What do you have in that well, lava? You are right though, those readings don't make sense because you would think that the 10 gallon would be rather low. Not on par with the 40. However as I type this it could have gone back up due to your water changes bringing the hardness back up faster than the snails can consume it. Though you would think it would also bring your PH back up.Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.
You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

Matt, I'm confused. If you have a well and use well water in your tank, what good is the city water report? And I'm not saying it's impossible, but your rummys look awfully happy to be living in liquid rock. Man, I can see why you're justifiably confused.
