Soft or hard water is related to dissolved minerals in the water. The more minerals, the harder the water. Some fish like hard water some (like neons/discus like very soft water.) One point, very soft water can suffer dangerous pH swings.
By the way, you say you are nearly cycled - so what are your water parameters? esp. the nitrite levels; also, what level nitrate is in your tap water?
