I'm kind of thinking about a blackwater type set up but instead of tanning just a lot of floaters to keep the tank darker. Maybe a little bit of tannins would be fine too.

No it is just part of the leaf that I guess has died but turned black instead of brown. I think the water is just naturally soft.

Algae and plant problems when I move to soft water.

Whenever I am at school and use the soft water here I always have staghorn problems and some plant deficiencies. Is this because hard water has more nutrients in it than soft water?
