I would test the water before using it. You want to see if the water contains any nitrate. Well water can contain nitrates in agricultural areas. You also want to test the pH. Oscars are okay, pH level from 6.5 to 8.0. Having said that, if possible, a pH of neutral which is 7.0 is best. Many people consider well water to be superior to any other water because it doesn't contain pollutants, especially if it comes from deep boreholes

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
