Rooted plants or plants in the higher order of plants, will store minerals for a rainy day if there are to many nutrients in the tank the plants will store these to the detriment of the plant long term. The harder the water the higher the mineral content. Also most aquatic plants like most freshwater fish come from soft acid environments. I know I am generalizing.
