Most fish will adjust to the hard water and be just fine, what are your pH, GH, KH readings?
Some CT rays can drop from too hard of water IME, but not all, some that have been bred and raised in hard water can adjust to it and be fine.

I would leave it alone unless the Betta is having problems with it IMO
