It seems quite independent of hardness. I would say algae and plants are
independent pretty much in aquariums. CO2 level is the issue more so than
hardness. I can get it and my water is very hard. Soft water gets it about
the same degree. I've never had it in any of my home tanks(unless induced
purposely) but see it elsewhere often.
