Soft water *update*

Hi all, very new to fishkeeping - infact I haven't even started cycling yet but I'm getting there slowly! I've been advised on another post to check the hardness of my water before selecting fish, which is fine I obviously want fish that can thrive in the conditions I can readily provide. I haven't tested my own water yet, waiting for the test kits to arrive but going off my water company information I have soft water, it says
Total hardness average 35 mg CA/l
Hardness Clark 6.125
pH 7.3 average
Does soft water affect cycling? How will I know if fish are adversely affected?
