Hard Water Plants

Hello everybody, this is another question coming from the question posted

I can't remember where I read or maybe I'm dreaming, but I believe I read
somewhere that peat in the water inhibits(?) or prevents growth of some
algae? Could someone send me the url or explain this to me ?
