Hi yukiyamallama,
KH is not really hardness from my understanding it’s GH that in the hardness or mineral content of water.
The two both play a role including PH .

I believe a KH of over 6 degrees is all you need worry about for fresh water tanks as that will help hold your PH stable.

What is important for live bearers like guppies is the GH .Do you have a test for GH?

Oh sorry, my GH is 8d...Which means its fine according to the pic you sent. Thank you!
Your actually lucky to have such a high buffer (kh) while maintaining a fair gh. You can basically keep anything with that gh. Its not extremely hard but not extremely soft either.
