softened water

So, we moved in to a new house and it turns out the well water here is
pretty pathetic.  High levels iron (18ppm) and tannsin (1ppm).  To get it
cleaned out, we finally had to resort to a water softener + tannin
reduction system.  Works great for the removal of the unwanted stuff, but
now I am in need of a water supply for my aquariums.

My question is, is there any way to take softened water and make it usable
for a planted aquarium?  I want to get a semi automated setup for changing
the water on my tank and if I have to start using R/O water, that becomes
semi difficult (have to add back in salts, hard to automate).

Looking for ideas. :)
