clowns in hard, alkaline water?

This is my first time posting here, so here goes...
I currently have 3 2-21/2 inch clowns and they seem to be doing just fine (no ick, swimming around, strong appetites). However I use water from my tap (conditioned of course) and it is hard (GH 283 ppm) and alkaline (pH 7.6-7.8). Ive heard it said several times that stability is more important than having optimum water parameters. Should I leave things be or take a more active role in lowering hardness and pH, and if so, what is the best way for someone on a budget (I'm a grad student). Than k you for your help.
